HASH(0x93485e58) étoiles sur 5 Beautiful, well organized... imperfect, but worth getting 20 janvier 2012
Par Evil Voodoo Celt - Publié sur
Format: Relié
"Reading Maya Art" is a journey through 100 common Maya logographic glyphs, showing how ancient Maya artists incorporated them into their work in order to give cues and context and imbue it with meaning. Stone and Zender's book is lavishly illustrated, well-organized, and compelling. Reading it is a fascinating journey through the ancient Mesoamerican artistic imagination; you can step through the glyphs sequentially, or follow trails back and forth from glyph to glyph and concept to concept.

The art history aspect of this book is (as far as I can tell) nearly flawless, but I have to wonder about some of the other mythological and archaeological scholarship. I'm what you might call a well-read (and deeply interested) amateur in this area, but I identified a few areas (like an assertion about the nature of "way" or "wahy" spirits) that needed more support, and some interpretations (the Vase of the Seven Gods) that are at least misleadingly simplified.

Still, a wonderful book and well worth it!

HASH(0x9348a27c) étoiles sur 5 Very useful format 22 novembre 2012
Par K. Rollins - Publié sur

Unlike other source books on Maya art, Reading Maya Art has a 28-page introduction followed by a catalog of 100 signs. For each sign, the book has a two-page spread. The left facing page offers several images that include the sign being discussed. Usually, the sign is marked in red on black and white drawings so it is easy for the reader to spot. The right hand page gives an explation of the sign and its variants as well as its role in Maya art.

For example, #31 is the symbol for jade celt. The figures on the left hand page include an incised celt, a tree-planting scene from a vase, and Pakal's famous sarcophagus lid from Palenque. The celt shows the ruler wearing several jade celts (belt pendants). The tree planting vase includes several celt symbols on the tree (marked in red in the diagram). The sarcophagus lid shows two jade celt signs engraved in the border and several on the world tree figure behind Pakal (marked in red).

The explanation on the right hand page details the value of jade and celts in royal regalia, as well as the sign's origin as a symbol for fruit. When the usage or origin is unclear, the authors, Andrea Stone and Marc Zender, acknowledge that as well.

Seeing the various styles and artistic takes on these symbols, as well as their changes over time, is a huge help to someone learning about ancient Maya art and culture.

HASH(0x9348a084) étoiles sur 5 Great Book. 26 mars 2012
Par Scarlet - Publié sur

This was a great starting point if you want to learn the basics of Maya glyphs, but if you want to learn the whole language as a hobby you will need something more in-depth. But in general, the history and phonetic rules are very clear.

HASH(0x9348a2b8) étoiles sur 5 Un libro inteligente y original 21 avril 2011
Par Miguel Rivera Dorado - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
De vez en cuando uno se sorprende con la aparición de un libro inteligente y original sobre los mayas antiguos. Se ha escrito tanto de esta civilización que esas cualidades en una publicación empiezan a ser una rareza por la dificultad de decir algo nuevo de una manera también nueva. Eso es lo que han conseguido Stone y Zender, quienes escriben una obra para un público amplio de estudiosos y estudiantes, bien ilustrada y bien razonada, donde los glifos se acompañan de argumentos y de figuras, y así todo es mucho más claro y evidente.

HASH(0x9348a6a8) étoiles sur 5 The Art of the Glyph 24 juin 2013
Par Patrick Curren - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have always been enamored with Maya architecture since I took architectural history in college. So last year we went to Cancun, Mexico and made a visit to Chichen-Itza and Tulum. While I enjoyed the restored Mayan cities, my understanding of their culture was limited. So when I got back, I looked for a well-rounded book that could educate me on Mayan culture. So I selected this book. I am glad I did so. This book was what I was looking for and did for me exactly what I wanted.

The hardback binding is covered in cloth with a colorful jacket and the pages are glossy and thick. The format is organized according to 100 glyphs with each glyph accompanied with a page of text and a page of art pieces painstakingly referenced to the text in exquisite detail. Many of the art pieces highlight the glyph references in red. The glyph art references/pieces consisted of vases, steles, dishes, jewelry, lintels, figurines, architectural panels, cave paintings, base relief sculptures, tablets, codices, utensils, alters and carved bones. The authors start with an analysis of a glyph followed by its pronunciation and then they make references to the various pieces of art on the facing page. In doing so, you learn a little bit more of Mayan life and culture glyph by glyph. Now when I look at a piece of Mayan art, I have an understanding of its meaning.

The only criticism of this book is that it would have been nice to have photos in color. Aside from the red highlights on the art pieces, the jacket is the only thing of color. The richness of this book and the Mayan culture is somewhat diminished by the limited use of color in this book.

In reference to my new or deeper perception of the Mayan's; while they were a stone age people with a belief system built on fear, their glyphs, art and architecture were extremely developed and well thought out. I am impressed by their artistic talent and uniqueness. Each glyph in itself is to be enjoyed and in fact is a work of art.
