THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE TONALTECAN INDIANS PAINT POTTERY IN OLD AZTEC DESIGNS These Indian artists come from Tonali, whose queen entertained the Conquistadores. Their studio, however, and most of the pottery shops are at the Guadalajara suburb of San Pedro Tlaquepaque. (q) iNational Ueograplic society Natural Color Photograph by L. Perez Parra DECORATING LEATHER-COVERED CHAIRS AND TABLES These sun-parlor or corridor sets of four chairs and a table are made of split saplings covered with pigskin. When new they smell of green leather, and white ants often attack the wood, but the chairs are springy and comfortable. The artist is painting the Aztec calendar on the table top.
