Cloth and Clay: Art and Culture in the Ancient Americas


This museum-mounted exhibition both examines the culture and cultural artifacts of pre-Columbian America and opens viewers' eyes to the role archaeology plays in constructing pictures of the past. This exhibit covers a range of ancient civilizations--principally the Incan and earlier cultures of Peru and the Mayan. It includes an in-depth look at ancient versus modern-day techniques of making ceramics and textiles as well as an especially rich discussion of Mayan hieroglyphs.
