Early New World Monumentality

Louise I. Paradis

University Press of Florida

In Guerrero, monumentality first appears at Teopantecuanitlan, probably around 1200 B.C., and in several other sites from 1000 B.C on. It is closely associated in its shape and content with the Olmec art style and civilization. An analysis of monumentality in this region of Mesoamerica, both from a historical (i.e., the original construction) and a long-term developmental perspective, contributes to the understanding of its origin and relation to the emergence of social complexity.
