How many times have you seen that Aztec calendar reproduced? (A gagillion, at least) There it was—the real thing. And that round stone with the hand in the middle—? I could not ascertain the significance of it and it was such a different style than all the other very finished and detailed work, but I found the image very compelling.
Look at these patterns! (says the lover of pattern) If I understood the explanation correctly, these were made to impress the patterns in wet clay. I envision using them like rubber stamps to print these patterns on fabric.
And if these monkeys don't make you smile, well you must be having a really bad day.
