Nice picture, sadly wrong time, Maya and place
This is a pity, because everything in the review rings true. Also, there are some wonderful surviving artefacts from the Aztecs. For instance, the fearful two-metre-high statue of the goddess Coatlicue ("she of the serpent skirt") mother of the warlike Huitzilopochtli ("hummingbird on the left"), or the terracotta Eagle Warrior that greets you near the entrance of the Templo Mayor Museum, Mexico City.
