A Signature Year: Aztec Dieties

Aztec Deities attempts in “words & images” to engage the reader in more literary searches for answers to the rise and fall of the Aztec empire (1427-1521). How the conquistador Cortéz with about 1,000 troops, horses, crude weaponry, and typical armor, with great acumen conquered the vast Aztec land and extended empire and devastated their civilization. The history of the period is broadly outlined in the book. Images represent a “gringo” contemporary artist’s creative exploration and representation of the period.
