Two creatures of celebrity were Mazimo and Bartola, who for twenty-five years have been shown in America and in Europe under the name of the "Aztecs" or the "Aztec Children". They were male and female and very short, with heads resembling closely the bas-reliefs on the ancient Aztec temples of Mexico.  Their facial angle was about 45 degrees, and they had jutting lips and little or no chin.  They wore their hair in an enormous bunch to magnify the deformity.  These curiosities were born in Central America and were possible half Indian and Negro.  They were little better than idiots in point of intelligence.
