Imperial Aztec Sun Temple
These abstracts evoke the mystery of ancient Aztec architectural forms and the contrasts between simple and elegant versus bold and powerful.
The Aztecan city of Tenochtitlan would become the world's largest city by the 16th century, and the seat of an expansive empire. Important features of the city included a the royal palace, a central plaza, temples, shrines, pyramids, courtyards, lush gardens, and even ball courts. While construction initiatives were limited to primitive tools and manual labor, their engineers had deployed precise mathematical techniques based on a "vigesimal" system, which is only now being understood by modern archaeologists.
