Description
Our conception of the ancient Mayans has often been defined by their preoccupation with royal bloodlines and ritual human sacrifice. Drawing on recent archaeological discoveries and developments in deciphering Maya glyphs, Daniel Finamore and Stephen Houston present a revisionist reading suggesting that water and the sea had a paramount influence upon the arts and culture of the Maya. Among the 100 color illustrations—many 12 x 9 1/2 inches—are a trumpet made from a conch shell, engraved stingray spines, a pottery vessel whose lid is a god paddling a small boat, and a brick with a grinning crocodile in bas relief.
