The mural paintings of Cacaxtla offer the starting point for a discussion of cultural interactions and the fabrication of prestige. After the disintegration of the Teotihuacán system, this book considers how city-states of the Central Highlands transformed their material culture to construct new political discourses to establish local authority.

About the Author

Juliette Testard holds a PhD in archaeology from the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and is a research engineer at the CNRS in the "Archéologie des Amériques" laboratory. She studies the figurative representations of the Mesoamerican Highlands during the Epiclassic period (600 to 900 AD) since 2006 to understand the way these societies constructed their ideological and political universe and, in particular, their otherness. She explored the interaction and affiliation with the distant through material and visual culture in her doctoral thesis defended in 2014, for which she received the PhD prize of the Musée du Quai Branly-Jacques Chirac (2015), Paris. This book constitutes the translation of an updated version of that university work. She is the author of several articles and book chapters and has organized several scientific events concerning the Epiclassic visual and cultural culture.
