A handsome hardback all about the Aztecs
Five hundred years ago, the landing of Hernan Cortes in Mexico marked the end of the Aztec Empire.
Aztecs showcases the beauty and artistry of the Aztec culture with unpublished finds such as rare feather shields, impressive stone sculptures, precious mosaic masks, and gold works, as well as brilliantly-coloured illustrated manuscripts that bring the world of the Aztecs to life. Precious objects from the magnificent furnishings of the palace of Emperor Moctezuma and the main temple Templo Mayor, including recently discovered sacrificial offerings that have never previously been exhibited are featured in this publication. Through 400 colour illustrations, this book provides an extensive look into the captivating history of the Aztec Empire.
