Pre-Columbian Pottery from the Museums' Collections: Ancient Peru

Exhibition Ongoing

Pottery from ancient Peru is justly celebrated for its beauty and technical craftsmanship, combining elements of naturalism and patterned abstraction with bold imagination. Reflecting a range of cultures and belief systems spanning more than a millennium, this exhibit highlights ceramic arts from the Chavin, Tiwanaku, Moche, Nazca, Wari, Sican and Chimu cultures. Both the Museum of Art and Archaeology and the Museum of Anthropology hold deep and rarely seen collections of Pre-Columbian art.
