Are there any illustrations of pre-Colombian cities while they were still inhabited?

I think he means illustrations of Pre-Columbian cities made by Europeans.

I guess not, that map/painting of Tenochtitlan (Mexico-Tenochtitlan) is the only one i know of, Europeans came to MesoAmerica when it was at a dark age, so almost all cities were already in ruin.
