Following this initial phase, the publication of Herbert Spinden 'A Study of Maya Art' (now over a century ago) laid the foundation for all later developments of Maya art history (including iconography). The book gives an analytical treatment of themes and motifs, particularly the ubiquitous serpent and dragon motifs, and a review of the 'material arts', such as the composition of temple.
