Pocket Dictionary of Aztec & Maya Gods & Goddesses


Members' price *

  • 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.
