About

Overview

Ceramics in the West part of Mexico acquired an important relevance in the history of prehispanic cultures due to their recurring use of funerary offerings in the tradition of Tumbas de Tiro or Shaft Tomb Tradition. In this issue we analyze the environmental circumstances that favored the refinement of the aesthetic taste and its relation to the transition between life and death.

Spanish description:
Las culturas de Occidente, aunque no han sido muy estudiadas, aun hoy mantienen una muy importante influencia en el altiplano central. La ceramica y figuras de barro son realmente diferentes de las de otras regiones, usualmente dominadas por entidades de tipo religioso en Mesoamerica.
