Ancient Mexican Art from the Collection of the National Museum of the American Indian
July 21, 2002–Summer 2003
George Gustav Heye Center
New York, NY

This exhibition features forty-four pieces from the collection of the National Museum of the American Indian to illustrate the cultural and historical continuity of Mexican art. The objects—most of which have never before been publicly displayed—include ceramic and stone sculpture, bowls, vessels, pendants, masks, and funerary urns. Most date to before the intrusions of non-Native people into Mexico in the 1500s. Several date as far back as 400 B.C.

Ancient Mexican Art provides a window on the world of ancient Mexico, and its objects reveal ancient Native beliefs and traditions. Pendants, bowls, and vessels incorporate images of snakes, scorpions, and especially jaguars, revered as sacred by many indigenous peopoles. Several funerary urns reflect homage to deities, as do wooden and stone-carved objects used during the Mesoamerican ball game.
