Blood of Kings

Dynasty and Ritual in Maya Art

ISBN: 9780500276679 (PB - E)

Maya texts embellish both their everyday objects and the monumental art and architecture commissioned by the kings to ensure their place in history.The Blood of Kings makes full use of the tremendous progress made in deciphering the complicated Maya hieroglyphic code, effectively penetrating the world and minds of the creators of Maya art. Linda Schele was a prolific Mesoamerican scholar. Her many great books include Maya Glyphs: The Verbs, Palenque Bodega and Maya Cosmos. Mary Ellen Miller is a distinguished art historian and academic specializing in Mesoamerica and the Maya. She has worked extensively in Central America, particularly Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras, where she has carried out research in Maya art, architecture, and culture.
