Divine And Human

The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. is hosting an exhibit tittled Divine and Human: Women in Ancient Mexico and Peru. You have one more month to catch the exhibit as it is scheduled to run through May 28, 2006. From the official NMWA website:

Divine and Human brings together 400 archaeological treasures from the unparalleled museum collections of Mexico and Peru. Magnificent sculptures, textiles, pottery, and jewelry explore the feminine “sphere” in cultures as varied as the Aztec, Mayan, Zapotec, Moche, Mixtec, and Incan.

One of the unfortunate truisms of history is that few women are mentioned by name and fewer still get their stories told.

If you are in the neighborhood stop by and catch the exhibit. If you can’t make it out, purchase the stunning catalogue.
