Examples of the Danzantes (dancing figures) from Monte Alban, capital of the Zapotec Civilization in the Oaxaca Valley of Mexico from c. 500 BCE to 900 CE. The figures are represented in reliefs taken from a Classic period temple at the site. Who are what these figures represent is not known. Some may be historical chiefs, others may be prisoners of war.
