Casas Grandes is the largest pre-Columbian civilization in northern Mexico with extensions into Arizona and New Mexico. In this volume, Christman (a retired physician with a fascination for Casas Grandes pottery) explains the symbols on 320 ancient Casas Grandes pottery pieces, along with a few Mimbres and neighboring cultures' pottery. Coverage is provided of various subjects in indigenous Mesoamerican thought including creation myths concerning gods, humankind, and the universe. Illustrated with some 1,000 color photographs, as well as maps and general overviews. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

From the Publisher:

The 1000 photographs of more than 300 pieces of pottery are intended to make this work an enduring reference. All the significant symbols are shown about each entire piece, and not just one view. Not only does this enhance description and appreciation, it allows the serious collector to compare these pieces with others. The pictures are unretouched. Especial care was taken in color reproductions. The paper is such that there is no "bleeding" through to the other side.

No other book has attempted a complete interpretation of the symbols of a Pre-Columbian culture as represented on its pottery.

About the Author:
