"This stuffed specimen of the Troglodytes Gorilla...was killed near the Gaboon River, in Africa, in the Spring of 1862...The attitude in which he is placed is taken from Du Chaillu’s Book of Travels, representing the appearance of one that killed his hunter, whose gun missed fire when endeavoring to shoot the Gorilla. In his rage he killed the hunter with one blow upon his bowels, bent his gun with his hands, and bit thee gun barrel so hard as to leave marks of his teeth upon it."
The holy city of Teotihuacan ('the place where the gods were created') is situated some 50 km north-east of Mexico City. Built between the 1st and 7th centuries A.D., it is characterized by the vast size of its monuments – in particular, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl and the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, laid out on geometric and symbolic principles.
