This splendid publication is the result of a 5 year research project initiated by Dr. Elisa Vargaslugo, who along with a group of prestigious art historians gathered a collection of graphic testimonies, (some never seen before) portraying the Mexican "Naturales" (Indians) during the colonial period, highlighting their importance during the conquest, and their role as fundamental members of society. The book discusses the active participation of the Indians in the artistic production, especially their pictorial contributions in the evangelization process and the integration of the Indians into the European culture.
