Summary The Lienzo Seler II (Coixtlahuaca II) from the collection of the Ethnological Museum in Berlin is one of the most impressive objects presented at the Humboldt Forum. Mixtekian and Chocho authors produced the large 383 cm x 442 cm cotton cloth in the 16th century in the valley of Coixtlahuaca (Oaxaca, Mexico) to document the origin of their rulers and the founding of their settlements in the multiethnic valley. They recorded events that span a period of more than 500 years into the early Spanish colonial period, and make their claim to power, land and privileges visible in the style of the pre-Romanesque picture. The document is named after its collector Eduard Seler, who brought it to Berlin in 1897. For the first time, the Lienzo is published in numerous detailed illustrations and interpreted by 10 international experts according to the latest findings.
