Karl Young - "Notation and the Art of Reading"

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.
