The splendid publication is the result of a 5 year research project initiated by Dr. Elisa Vargaslugo, who along 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 in their role as fundamental members of society. Shows the active participation of the Indians in the artistic production, especially their pictorial contributions in the evangelization process and integration of the Indians into the European culture.
