TEOTIHUACAN: ART FROM THE CITY OF THE GODS. Ed. by Kathleen Berrin and Esther Pasztory. M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, 1993. Published in association with Thames and Hudson Inc., New York. 288 pp. with 266 ills. (219 col.). 29 x 23 cm. LC 92-62139 ISBN 0500236534 In English.
Documenting the first major exhibition of artifacts recovered from the ancient ruins of Teotihuacan, a great metropolis in central Mexico that flourished from approximately 150 B.C. to A.D. 750, this catalogue presents excellent illustrations and individual discussions of 187 ceramic figurines and vessels, monumental stone sculptures, mural paintings, masks and other objects drawn from numerous international collections. Eleven essays explore diverse aspects of the still obscure history of Teotihuacan's sophisticated civilization, discussing the city's massive pyramids, its public buildings and the apartment compounds that housed its vast population; the nature of the state's government as revealed in funerary practices; the highly symbolic iconography of Teotihuacan art; and the influence exerted by the culture throughout Mesoamerica.
