The Aztec Oaxacan Table Luminaire
Mayan & Aztec Civilization
The Aztecs appeared in Mesoamerica, in the south-central region of pre-Columbian Mexico in the early 13th century. In Aztec art as well as architecture, the "stepped fret" design called Xicalcoliuhqui is one of the most well recognized and famous. Directly picking up this pattern, as well as the stepping in Aztec pyramids, the lamp bases as well as the lamp shades are sculpted and folded through these interpretations taking our mind and our thoughts to one of the culturally proserous and complex civilizations of the medieval Americas.
