T1-E1:P1-p1-s1 Research – Aztec design influence

I’m at the end of the time I’d allocated for this Stage. There’s more I wanted to write about, but for now I’ll finish with a visual roundup showing some art and design with Aztec influence.

Various photographs I took at the Aztec exhibition at the Australian Museum (some photos later manipulated in the computer). Artifacts include fired clay stamps (1250 – 1521), section of a warrior brazier (fired clay, pigment, about 1500), mural fragment (wall, Teotihuacan, 200 – 900, clay, stucco, pigment), sculpture of Yapatecuchtli (1200 – 1521, fired clay), concrete wall tiles from Pyrmont incinerator Sydney (1934, designed by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin).

Art influenced by Aztec design and culture
The works I have found generally link back to the Aztecs as a source of legitimacy, pride and revolutionary statement.
