Synopsis: This beautiful book presents the first systematic study of Mexican feather mosaics in the context of a broader creative exchange between Mesoamerican and European aesthetics and materials. Thirty-three scholars look at these unprecedented feather artworks that circulated all around the world in the 16th and 17th centuries from a range of vantage points, , including art history, anthropology, collecting, natural history, archeology, and conservation. Published to complement a major international exhibition held at the National Museum of Art (MUNAL) in Mexico City in 2011, the book is organized thematically and includes over three hundred colour photographs illustrating feather mosaics with astonishing details, as well as relevant paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings, books,European illuminated manuscripts, Mesoamerican codices, and studies of natural history. No book has ever brought together so many images of artworks from this tradition, let alone assembled a team of scholars to offer such trenchant analysis. It will be essential for art historians, scholars of colonialism, and historians of the Spanish Empire alike.

Product Description: This beautiful catalog presents a stunning range of feather mosaics from Mexico and Latin America that were created during the time of the Spanish Empire. It presents new photographs of these complicated, beautiful works, and through essays and analysis explores the history, aesthetics, importance, and religious and cultural significance of the pieces. Scholars analyze the complicated use of varied materials in the artworks, which include not only feathers but also jade, turquoise, and gold, and they draw lessons about the Mesoamerican understanding of ornithology and natural history.No book has ever brought together so many images of artworks from this tradition, let alone assembled a team of scholars to offer such trenchant analysis. It will be essential for art historians, scholars of colonialism, and historians of the Spanish Empire alike.
