Para los Mexicas, al igual que para otras sociedaded humanas, los animales fueron lo otro, lo ajeno al hombre, pero al mismo tiempo fueron los seres naturales más cercanos a él en todos aspectos de su cotidianidad. Los animales fueron seres que mantuvieron y permitieron una comunicación estracha con los humanos, estableciendo relaciones que fueron más allá del dominio y la sumisión, forjando vinculos de amistad, afecto, consustancialidad y hasta parentesco. Los animales fueron demiurgos entre los humanos y los poderes sagrados del cosmos, proporcionaron valores morales y éticos a seguir, sirvieron como metáforas y simbolos, entre muchas cosas más, que los hicieron parte de un pensamiento común con otros pueblos mesoamericanos y que los diferenciaba de los conquistadores que llegaron al Nuevo Mundo. El tema central de esta obra es la apreciación y celebración de las relaciones entre los Mexicas y la fauna con la cual compartieron su medio. 0.0. Bookseller Inventory # 9057890658AMA011414
