The Arts of the Ancient Americas
By Michelle Rich
An illustrated compendium of artworks from the ancient Americas. Including Indigenous works from the southwestern United States, Mesoamerica, the Isthmo-Colombian Area, and the Andes of South America, this book showcases more than 100 masterpieces of art from the ancient Americas. These are presented in historical, archaeological, and artistic context with new photography and scholarship. The publication considers ceramics, metalworks, stone carvings, and textiles from an array of America's earliest civilizations, including Ancestral Puebloan, Mexica, Olmec, Maya, Chavín, Inca, Moche, Wari, and more. Highlights include some exceptional rarities, including a Chavín crown with deity figures, a previously undefined style of four-panel Andean tunics, a Mixtec mosaic mask, a Maya lidded tetrapod bowl, and breathtaking gold jewelry from the Isthmo-Colombian Area.
