Author's painted facsimile of p. 16 (k 37) of Codex Vienna. The figures at right are primordial deities preparing for the emergence of the Mixtec people from the magic tree-woman of Apoala (center). The figures above and in the left column are the Mixtec patriarchs. That's a very short reading - a much longer one was possible in the book's original context. Actual size: 10.5 inches by 8.75 inches.
