Muerte Azteca-Mexica - The Aztecs-Mexica and Death - Artes de México


The Aztecs-Mexica and Death: A Rebirth of Gods and Men. Mexica representations of death can take our breath away by facing us with the aesthetic aspects of something that is beyond our comprehension. What became of humans after death? And when people died, what determined where their souls went? A disturbing issue that deals with our concerns about the mystery of existence.
