ART MOTIFS OF CHINA AND MEXICO

Striking similarity is shown between art motifs of China and Mexico in the two decorative borders shown above, the upper coming from the early Ch’ou Dynasty in China and the lower from El Tajin, Mexico. The similarities, including the use of the double line for emphasis and the curved “tiger tufts” at the bottom are too exact to be fortuitous.
