Christoph Weiditz´s Trachtenbuch

Weiditz was a german artist of the XVIth century at the service of the Habsburgs who dedicated a year painting the everyday of the people of the territories of Spain, including, Netherlands, Rousillon and the both Sicilies.

In his drawings we can see, among paintings of other spanish people without any reference to otherness, black people and moriscos.

He also painted some aztecs brought from Nueva España to the royal court, that are some of the first images known of aztec people drawn from life.

[mod note]

unfantasmarecoreeuropa's submission is so huge I have to break it up into a few posts!

This portion featuring Aztec or Méxica people is actually really interesting because it depicts various forms of gaming or contests. Gaming was a very popular topic for many Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts. Examples include The Golf Book, so called because of the miniature depicting a game of golf; and Alfonso El Sabio’s Book of Games (El Libro de los Juegos), dating from the 13th century and also features many illustration of people of color.

"I don’t really like people, but it’s difficult to get comfortable with loneliness. I mean, I’ve tried to have friends, but it never works out. And I’m tired of going out alone. I’m ok staying in at my place. It smells good when I burn incense and I have a lot of records and I can just play video games.” The bus she was waiting for arrived. “Do you need to go?” "It’s ok. Another one will come in ten minutes… But then, you know, sometimes I just want a partner— a relationship. It would be nice to share this part of my life with someone. I’ve been single for years, and you know, there are people I could call if I wanted to. But people always end up saying things that rub me the wrong way, or if I open up to them, suddenly they want me to be their best friend, and I don’t want people to have expectations of me. I don’t want to waste anyone else’s time if I’m not interested in being close to them." Another bus came and went while she told me about the loneliness, wiping tears from her eyes. Then another. “I’m sorry, I’ve talked too long.” "It’s really ok. Sometimes we just need to connect." "Yeah, I forget that sometimes."

I feels her.
