There are many theories about the gold of the Aztecs and what it really was. As an artist I'm inclined to think that it is always art and crafts that are the most precious things that a civilisation has to offer. That's why I would see the artistic heritage of the Aztecs as the real treasure. Of course everyone is entitled to their own hypotheses :) My abstract work is titled Gold of the Aztecs, but it leaves much room for interpretation, as the subject is and probably always will be open.
