Product Description


The Aztec and Maya pantheon entails fantastic stories of gods and goddesses, who are often involved in long-drawn-out contests and bitter battles. This book is an illustrated companion to the key deities and explains their relationships with other gods and goddesses, and their role in Aztec and Maya mythology. Included in the book are beguiling figures such as the Aztec gods Tezcatlipoca (the Smoking Mirror) and Quetzalcoati (the Feathered Serpent). Who were the twin gods who enraged the lords of death and the demons of disease with a simple ball game? And what became of Camazotz, the killer bat? Plentifully illustrated and fun to use, this book is a beautiful companion to Aztec and Maya culture for both adults and children.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great basic guide, almost equally split between Aztec and Maya. A good insight into the main gods of both peoples with large colourful illustrations of each. However, it lacks on real detail. Ideal to stuff in a knapsack if visiting a museum containing Aztec/Mayan items.

HASH(0x98dba9fc) out of 5 stars A Disappointing, Tiny Book for Kids 11 Dec. 2012
By Stanley C. Sargent - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This hardcover book is not exactly pocket-book size (it's a little larger), but it is only 48 pages. There's a little text and a photo of a sculpted image or painting of a few gods from each of the cultures. It's really disappointing, considering the British Museum did this. Some of the main gods/goddesses are not included, and very little info is given for any of the ones that are there. Save your money. Even kids would find it boring after a bit, and there are a very few gory references. Don't bother with this item.
