Masks of the Spirit: Image & Metaphor in Mesoamerica
Robert H. Markman (au); Peter T. Markman (au); Joseph Campbell (in).

Chapters: (1) the metaphor of the mask in Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica: the mask as the God, in ritual, & as metaphor; (II) metaphoric reflections of the cosmic order; & (III) the metaphor of the mask after the conquest: syncretism; the Pre-Columbian survivals; the syncretic compromise; & today’s masks.
