Hugo Boss Fall/Winter 2015-2015 Campaign on The typical pottery of Aztec day to day life in the th century was often red or cream colored and decorated with fine geometric lines with a calligraphic quality, or with natural motifs of fish, flowers, or animals. The finest examples of functional pottery were produced in the town of Cholula, situated on the outskirts of the city of Puebla. Indeed, the distinctive red and black ware of Cholula was the personal favorite of Montezuma. Formerly Cholollan, this Indian town was one of the first victims of Cortess forces, but it has managed to keep its preeminent position hi the art of pottery throughout Mexicos turbulent postconquest history. The sheer quantity of clay vessels and figurines made in the Valley of Mexico was extraordinary. A small insight into the scale of pottery manufacture at the height of the Aztec Empire is provided by Bernal Diazs observations of a typical meal taken by the emperor Montezuma: As soon as the great Montezuma had dined, all the guards and many more of his household servants ate in their turn.
