"Unlike the Spaniards, who viewed death as the end of life, the natives viewed it as the continuation of life. Instead of fearing death, they embraced it. To them, life was a dream and only in death did they become truly awake. "

"Death held a significant place in the pantheons and rituals of Mexico's ancient civilizations."


With our darts,
with our shields,
the city lives.
There, where the darts are dyed,
where the shields are painted,are the perfumed white flowers,flowers of the heart.
The flowers of the Giver of Life
open their blossoms.
Their perfume is sought by the lords:
this is Tenochtitlan
