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

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 236 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
Costume et insignes d'un gouvernant maya : K'inich Janaab' Pakal de Palenque by Laura Filloy Nadal( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in French and Spanish and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The city of Palenque achieved its greatest splendour in the Late Classic when it became one of the foremost centres in the Maya world. During the reign of K'inich Janaab' Pakal (A.D. 615-683) the Temple of the Inscriptions, which later served as his sepulchre and commemorative monument, was built. In 1952, Alberto Ruz Lhuillier discovered the funerary chamber in the Temple of the Inscriptions. Based on the reports from the 1950s, photographs taken at the time of the discovery, work published over the past half century, and the analysis of objects that composed the funerary furnishings, this research proposes a holistic revision of the funerary complex. The funerary furnishings, the manufacturing technique and technical sequence employed to create such pieces were studied; the geographic location of the sources of the raw materials was proposed. Finally, the function of each object and its probable significance were discussed."--Publisher's web site
Misterios de un rostro maya : la máscara funeraria de K'inich Janaab' Pakal de Palenque( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The funerary jade mask of K'inich Janaab' Pakal is the most emblematic piece of the holdings of the Museo Nacional de Antropología (National Museum of Anthropology, INAH). This Mayan masterpiece was created at the end of the 7th century as part of the funerary attire of the most celebrated ruler of the Maya reign of Palenque: Pakal the Great. The present edition examines the most exiting archeological discovery of the 20th century and the analysis done by a multidisciplinary group of scientists interested in solving the multiple mysteries of the governor and his era, the materials used by lapidary workers to elaborate the mask, its meaning and the death ceremonies in the Temple of Inscriptions
La Ofrenda 4 de La Venta : un tesoro olmeca reunido en el Museo Nacional de Antropología : Estudios y catálogo razonado( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in Spanish and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Uno de los más extraordinarios descubrimientos en el centro de la costa del Golfo sucedió en 1955, cuando el arqueólogo mexicano Eduardo Contreras excavó la Plataforma norte del sitio olmeca de La Venta, Tabasco y encontró una rica ofrenda compuesta por 16 figurillas talladas en distintas piedras que representan a individuos masculinos, y una fila de seis hachas delgadas que marcaba la escena. Al hallazgo se le denominó ofrenda 4 de la venta. El proyecto arqueológico que dio a la luz este hallazgo fue codirigido por Philip Drucker y Roberto heizer, y patrocinado por el Instituto Smithsoniano, la National Geographic Society y la University of california, Berkeley, y aprabado por el Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (INAH), de México. La Ofrenda 4 es una de las obras más connatadas del mundo. Representa un evento político-religioso que sucedió hace 3000 años aproximadamente: 16 individuos participan en una ceremonia dentro de un espacio ritual construido mediante la colocación de seis estelas. La ofrenda fue cuidadosamente enterrada bajo diversas capas de arcilla de múltiples colores: el primer estrato era café rojizo y los que le siguieron estaban constituidos por arcillas naranjas, rosa, amarilla y blanca, que posiblemente hacen referencia a los distintos niveles del cosmo"--
Las cosas de la noche : Una mirada diferente by Hannah Ahlheim( )

1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La noche es, sin duda, alguna uno de los temas más prometedores de la antropología del nuevo milenio sobre el cual se implanta desde ahora una pléyade de coloquios, tesis e investigaciones de campo. Si la noche fue por largo tiempo el punto ciego de nuestra disciplina es porque la mirada, los hábitos y la experiencia del Occidente sobre esta otra mitad de nuestra existencia parecía racional y universal, mientras que aquellos de los Otros, exóticos del espacio y del tiempo, no solamente parecían sorprendentes e incomprensibles, sino además locamente irracionales. De hecho, tenemos el hábito de pensar y de vivir un cierto número de alternancias que nos parecen evidentes o naturales: claridad diurna/oscuridad nocturna, vigilia/sueño, actividad/descanso, seguridad/peligro. Nos es difícil convencernos de que otras sociedades no las conciban así y no las vivan del mismo modo. Las fronteras entre estos fenómenos impuestos, percibidos, vividos, comunes a los humanos, constituyen precisamente el campo de las culturas que crean, modifican, dedican un espacio intermedio propicio al despliegue y al imaginario de las reglas del consciente y de las pulsiones del inconsciente. A pesar de que han concedido un crédito constante a los eventos excepcionales que apuntalan el tiempo nocturno, tales como los rituales de iniciación, de hechicería, las sesiones chamánicas, los velorios fúnebres o el culto a los ancestros, los etnólogos no habían dado hasta la época reciente una suficiente atención a las prácticas del cotidiano nocturno, a las rutinas del tiempo consagrado o robado al sueño. Desde ahora, incumbe pintar la infinita diversidad de las maneras de tratar la noche y la complejidad de los modos de actuar, de trabajar, de defenderse, de distraerse, todo el campo de los posibles que le es aferente, y que el concepto de nocturnidad permite abordar para expresar que la noche no es el reverso del día sino otro continente con sus propias dificultades, alumbradas por modelos
Costume et insignes d'un roi maya de Palenque : Kinich Janaab Pakal, vie et mort d'un souverain maya du classique récent by Laura Filloy Nadal( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La ville de Palenque a atteint son apogée durant Ie Classique Tardif, lorsqu'elle est devenue I'un des plus importants centres mayas. Le Temple des Inscriptions a été édifié durant Ie règne de K'inich Janaab' Pakal (615-683 ap. J.C.), pour servir de sépulcre au souverain et de monument commémoratif de son règne. L'ensemble architectural du Temple des Inscriptions se compose d'une structure pyramidale, d'un sarcophage, d'un complexe trousseau funéraire en jade et d'un programme iconographique qui reflètent une volonté d'assurer la survie éternelle du plus illustre seigneur de Palenque. En 1952, l' archéologue Alberto Ruz a découvert la chambre funéraire du Temple des Inscriptions. En prenant appui sur les rapports de fouilles rédigés durant les années 1950 ainsi que I'analyse des objets qui constituaient le trousseau funéraire, cette recherche se propose de réaliser une révision holistique de I'ensemble funéraire. On a étudie les traitements auxquels a été soumis Ie corps du souverain défunt en vue de sa conservation. A aussi été réalisée une analyse du trousseau funéraire qui comprenait de objets en céramique, stuc, jade, perles naturelles, coquillages marins, ardoise, nacre, obsidienne et pyrite. La technique de fabrication et la séquence technique employées pour la confection de ces objets ont également été traitées. Parallèlement, des propositions ont été formulées concernant la localisation géographique des gisements d'où provenaient les matières premières et les voies qui ont pu permettre leur transport jusqu'à Palenque. La fonction de chaque objet et sa probable signification ont été discutées. Les divers portraits que l'on conserve du souverain ont fait I'objet d'une étude. En ultime instance, un réexamen du programme iconographique de I'ensemble du Temple des Inscriptions a été mené. II visait à reconstruire Ie sens qu'a pu véhiculer chacun de ses éléments et à proposer une interprétation globale du complexe
National Museum of Mexican Art : a preservation plan by María Astrid Esquivel Álvarez( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Established in 1984 by a group of Mexican-American teachers, the National Museum of Mexican Art is one of the most prominent institutions for Mexican art and culture in the United States. Since its opening in 1987, the museum has worked hard to become a cultural organization, committed to accessibility, education and social justice while showcasing the richness of Mexican culture, present in the Midwest for more than 150 years. Today, the museum is home to more than 9,000 pieces from ancient Mexico to the present, including colonial artifacts, prints, drawings, photography, textiles, paintings and folk art, which drive most of the museum's programs and serve as a primal tool to foster the museum's mission. Even though the museum has developed various policies on collections management, loans and documentation, lacks a general conservation plan for both, the building and the collection itself. The objective of the thesis is to conduct an assessment of the various factors that affect the institution as a whole and transform them into a comprehensive conservation plan for the museum; guided by a series of documents issued by leading institutes in integrated conservation, such as the Getty Conservation Institute and the National Institute of Conservation; site visits and interviews with staff. This thesis aims to provide a sense of documents that as a whole, will help reduce the rate of deterioration and future expenses for both, the collection and the building and will eventually, become an efficient and powerful form of conservation. The documents will include a prioritized plan for improvements in the building as well as a general maintenance plan; strategies for environmental management; general storage, handling and transportation guidelines; prioritization of the objects groups most in need of a restorative intervention and an elaboration of an emergency plan
