- ART OF MESSAGE?- This sculptured plaster frieze was discoveres in the patio of a building, that might have been a house, at Lambityeco, Oaxaca. Crafted by Zapotec Indians several centuries ago, this frieze contains glyphs which could represent dates or the names of important personages. In any case it is not just artistic decoration.
- PART OF THE PANTHEON- The Zapotec ceramist who executed his terra-cotta effigy urn had many gods. This figure is wearing headdress which features the face of Tlaloc, the rain god.
- OLYPMIC SWIMMER-The figure, part of a plaster frieze from Lambityeco, depicts a wrinkled and bearded man, carrying a bone, perhaps a human femur, in his right hand. It probably does not represent a man swimming or lying down, but was, rather, the only way the artist could fit the figure into the panel.
- FROM THE GRAVE- This carved stone was brought to light by UA anthropologists excavating at Huahuapan de Leon. It was found in the tomb of a man who belonged to the upper crust of Mixtec Indian society.
- AFTER THE SHOW- It´s a Mexican archeological tradition that when the job is done the anthropologusts and their workers are grouped for a picture. Shown seated third from left Joe Mogor, former UA studenr, and at the far right is Prof. John Paddock. They have just completed excavations at Huahuapan de Leon in the state of Puebla.
- CLASSIC ART- The Zapotec Indians reigned in the Valley of Oaxaca for almost a thousand years. They were merchant traders, statesmen, theologians and artisans of high quality. Their art, while more baroque that of the Olmec or Mayan, has, nevertheless, great emotional impact and beauty.
