Aztecslens cloth Size: 15 x 15 cm
These colourful lens cloth are inspired by one of the most spectacular pre-colonial manuscripts - the Codex Borgia. The painted symbols express the influence of specific deities on subdivisions of the calendar.

- deer with closed eyes, flowers, feathers and ornaments - the deer was a symbol of the sun god and its skin was often used as material for manuscripts
