black & white previews
All colour images are also available as black & white prints. The b&w previews offered here are produced by simply desaturating the image via Javascript. The result is a neutral b&w preview which may appear flat or too dark/bright. Before printing, however, each image is individually assessed and adjusted for best contrast, tonal quality, and dynamic range.

Statue of goddess Coatlicue at the Mexico City Anthropological Museum
The Aztecs believed that the goddess Coatlicue had given birth to the moon, stars, and to Huitzilopochtli, the god of the sun and war. She is also known as Teteoinan, `The Mother of Gods`, and as Toci (Tocî, `our grandmother`) and Cihuacoatl (Cihuācōhuātl, `the lady of the serpent`), the patron of women who die in childbirth.
