So yesterday I was feeling like a good member of society and decided I would actual return some library books! Ontime! That never happens. While I was there I checked out some ancient Mexican art books and look what I found.... seafoam!

This is an amazing mask of the aztec god Quetzalcoatl made from inlaid turquoise. Very impressive.

This one is a decorated human skull!!!!!! hardcore! It depicts Tezcatlipoca, god of chance.

I don't know who this one is, but it is beautiful. All the mask are from around 1300-1500. Thanks library.
