Exhibition catalogue of some of the most important archaeological pieces found at the excavation sites in Zaachila and tumba 7 in Monte Albán. The exhibition took place during the festivities of La Guelaguetza. This catalogue is just a glance to the complex and abundant religious iconography that tied the people with their deities in the pre Colombian world of Oaxaca. In his essay Marcus Winter, researcher of the Centro INAH of Oaxaca places the pieces in a detailed historic and geographic context; on the other hand, Archaeologist Martha Carmona Macías; Museo Nacional de Antropología, makes an aesthetic criticism about the refined techniques used by the pre Hispanic artists. Illustrated with magnificent full page color photographs.
