Abyssal astronomy

The relationship between the mineral world and outer space is perhaps not intuitive, but, though scientifically speaking, the history of our planet cannot be unlinked from that of the cosmos, different societies have found ways to establish that connection via symbolisms, primarily religious ones.

Mesoamerican cultures, in this sense, oriented diverse aspects of their artistic and architectural expressions through ideas associated with celestial movements and their meanings in everyday life; their conceptions of time directly integrated human landscapes (with their artistic patterns) and divine landscapes (with their astronomical patterns).The obsidian slabs of these pieces are flaked off through ancient techniques used by these cultures, their colors and natural patterns a reflection of their abyssal origin, but also of the material and concrete burden of the conceptions of sky and space that have been the source of important thought of American cultures.
