Kurzbeschreibung

30. September 1998
This volume documents the splendid accomplishments of Ancient West Mexico, and brings together some of its finest examples of sculptural art, including representations of people, animals and plants, as well as vessels and models of houses, ceremonial centres, ball games and ritual scenes. All the extraordinary earthenware figures illustrated here have been recovered from burial sites and shaft tombs. They represent a wide range of subjects - warriors, chieftains, ladies, acrobats, shamans, musicians, ball players, festival couples and bound prisoners - in a variety of styles from about 200 BC to AD 800 - that compose the artistic canon of Ancient West Mexico, a region encompassing the modern states of Colima, Jalisco and Nayarit.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A step forward for West Mexican History 6. Mai 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This work provides a nice look at a part of what we know about this area. Western Mexico has a largely unappreciated history even among scholars in the mesoamerican field. It's probably safe to say that the written history of this area has only begun to develope despite a long record of investigation.
The photography in this work is excellent. The text is informative. Anyone interested in this area owes it to themselves to read this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen beautifully excecuted book with a well written text 3. November 1998
Von Marieke
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a delight to read and look at the photographs. Very unusual samples of ceramic art. The text is as the title indicates rather on the archeological side. The only thing missing is a description of the actual clay technique used (coils). Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Beautiful with great information 19. März 2001
Von AK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Ancient West Mexico is a fascinating region that has been overlooked by many scholars through the years. Finding very good information about the cultures of West Mexico is difficult. This book is wonderful...it has the latest archaeological information, beautiful photographs of the pieces and the landscape, and great detailed illustrations and diagrams. I often teach about the ancient cultures of Mesoamerica and this is a perfect resource.
