Teotihuacan : city of water, city of fire( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Founded in the first century BCE near a set of natural springs in an otherwise dry northeastern corner of the Valley of Mexico, the ancient metropolis of Teotihuacan was on a symbolic level a city of elements. With a multiethnic population of perhaps one hundred thousand, at its peak in 400 CE, it was the cultural, political, economic, and religious center of ancient Mesoamerica. A devastating fire in the city center led to a rapid decline after the middle of the sixth century, but Teotihuacan was never completely abandoned or forgotten; the Aztecs revered the city and its monuments, giving many of them the names we still use today. Teotihuacan : City of Water, City of Fire examines new discoveries from the three main pyramids at the site--the Sun Pyramid, the Moon Pyramid, and, at the center of the Ciudadela complex, the Feathered Serpent Pyramid--which have fundamentally changed our understanding of the city's history. With illustrations of the major objects from Mexico City's Museo Nacional de Antropologia and from the museums and storage facilities of the Zona de Monumentos Arqueologicos de Teotihuacan, along with selected works from US and European collections, the catalogue examines these cultural artifacts to understand the roles that offerings of objects and programs of monumental sculpture and murals throughout the city played in the lives of Teotihuacan's citizens. Published in association with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Exhibition dates: de Young, San Francisco, September 30, 2017-February 11, 2018; Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), March-June 2018"--Provided by publisher

"Esta obra presenta la historia, los antecedentes, las características físicas, la interpretación cultural y el análisis de la iconografía de las grandes esculturas que hemos heredado de los mexicas: la Coatlicue, la Piedra del Sol, la Piedra de Tizoc, la Piedra del Antiguo Arzobispado, la Coyolxauhqui y la Tlaltecuhtli. Se trata de un profundo análisis de la historia de los colosales monolitos que son fundamentales para comprender la cosmogonía mexica, reconstruir nuestro pasado remoto y edificar nuestra identidad actual. El volumen Escultura monumental mexica consta de ocho apartados: el primero es una visión general de la sociedad mexica, el segundo es un acercamiento al arte escultórico de esa civilización y el resto de los apartados describen las colosales piedras. El libro no se limita a explorar los valores estéticos, el contenido histórico y las funciones litúrgicas de los seis monolitos en cuestión, sino que aborda las miradas que estas obras maestras han suscitado a lo largo del tiempo entre conocedores y profanos, mexicanos y extranjeros, hispanistas e indigenistas, entre otros"--Publisher's website (Fondo de Cultura Económica)
