Aztec imperial art before the Spanish invasion

The Aztecs created a refined and powerful monumental style to decorate their capital city, which awed the invading Spaniards in 1519. Emily Umberger, University of Arizona, reconstructs the final appearance of the imperial city, its luxury goods and the sculptures commissioned by Moctezuma.
