Call Number: SPE** F 1219.56 C627 C63X 1984 V.1 and V.2
Publication Date: 1984
This "codex" consists of fragments of a very large painting, some of which is believed to have been lost since it was first described by Borutini in the eighteenth century. The principal theme is warfare. Indians armed with bows, arrows, macanas, and shields with the symbol for war between them are a frequent motif. The taking of prisoners and sacrifices are also shown, as are native houses, place glyphs, and other symbols.
