Patrons and Artists: New Information on the Producers of Codex-Style Ceramics of the Mirador Basin
Codex-style ceramics are a distinctive product of the Late Classic Mirador Basin of north-central Peten, Guatemala. Through the archaeological work of the Mirador Basin Project and the chemical analyses of affiliated scholars we now have a considerable amount of information on the physical production of these vessels. In this presentation we present new evidence on the artists who produced these vessels, as well as the nobles for whom they were painting. These data provide much needed new information to re-evaluate the sociopolitical system that gave rise to these ceramics.
