Compare and Contrast Introduction Art is a very fundamental act in molding and influencing culture and cultural identities all over the world. Most generations have led their way of life transforming universal materials through art into cultural creations. Taking Aztec art for instance, was a culture of Central Mexico during the imperial period (1431 1521). The art of sculptures highly influenced the architectural and cultural activities that helped develop the history of ancient Central Mexico. Nonetheless, in modern times, art still stands out as the mother of all architectural development and cultural identity. For instance modern nations and republics are preserving and maintaining their old art; like buildings, sculptures and many more crafted artifacts just for identity and prestige. Despite the fact that Aztec arts differs to some extent with the architectural symbols of the new nation of the United States, there are some areas where they are similar.
