ABOUT THE ART

The Aztecs, or Mexica as they called themselves, were the elite of a militaristic empire centered at Central Mexico.
The Aztecs originated in the semi-arid environments of northern Mexico as one of the many barbarian or "Chichimec" tribes. When they arrived at the fertile Valley of Mexico at 14th century CE, they found the land already settled and divided by city states. As a result, the Aztecs adopted a writing system that had been used for many centuries before and shared by many of the other nations of Central Mexico.
The language that the Aztec spoke was called Nahuatl. It was also the language of the majority of the people in Central Mexico and Mesoamerica. The origin of Nahuatl writing is poorly understood.
Nahuatl writing was primary written on perishable media such as deer-skin and paper codices. Due to ravages of time and purposeful destruction of books by both the Aztecs and the Spanish conquistadores, no pre-Columbian book has survived to the modern age. All surviving documents containing Nahuatl writing were composed after the Conquest and contained a mixture of Aztec glyphs and Spanish notes.
