- A collection of drawings attributed to Augustino Aglio, circa 1835-1840, that includes a panorama comprised of seven drawings glued together and nine discrete drawings. The drawings depict his interpretation of the Aztec migration myth as conveyed in the Boturini Codex. The Boturini Codex, also known as "Tira de la Peregrinación" (The Strip Showing the Travels), was painted by an unknown Aztec author between 1530 and 1541, and is named for one of its first European owners, Lorenzo Boturini Bernaducci (1702-1751). The codex depicts the legendary Aztec journey from Aztlán to the Valley of Mexico on a long sheet of amatl (fig bark), which was then accordion-folded into pages. Unlike many Aztec codices, the drawings are outlined with black ink and not colored.
