In the Epiclassic period (650-900 AD) Maya tribesmen emigrating from the Gulf settled on the Altiplano in Cacaxtla. The meeting of Maya influences with those from Teotihuacán (in decline) is illustrated in the extraordinarymurals . Well-preserved thanks to a fine layer of sand covering them and the tenacity of the so-called (indigo-based) "Maya" blue, they show superb battle scenes in which human-scale bird-warriors and jaguar-warriors clash.
