Description
In the burial context for which they were meant, such vivid evocations of worldy pleasure are an affirmation of life, and a promise of its continuity. The ancient cultures of West Mexico took a direct and unblinking appraoch to human sexualilty. They did not fear it and they did not smirk at it, realizing--as the post-Victorian world seems only able to do with difficulty--that it is a central focus in a balanced world. - (PF.0270)
