Cloth and Clay: Art and Culture in Ancient Americas

A museum-mounted exhibition that (1) examines the culture and cultural artifacts of pre-Columbian America and (2) opens eyes to the role archaeology plays in constructing pictures of the past. Covers a range of ancient civilizations--principally the Inca and earlier cultures of Peru and the Maya. With in-depth looks at ancient versus modern-day techniques for making ceramics and textiles and an especially rich discussion of Mayan hieroglyphs.
