TREASURES FROM THE GRAVE: PRE-HISPANIC ART AND RITUAL

The value and meaning of pre-Hispanic grave goods has changed over time, but the artistry of the objects has withstood the test of time.

This exhibit has objects from Latin and South America exhibited in groups by modern day country or region. There is a case of objects from the Spanish conquistador – the original treasure hunters!

Treasures from the Grave features three new interactives! There is a huge magnetic map where you can match objects in the exhibit to the proper place on the map. Another interactive teaches how to count with the Maya number system with a hands-on twist. The third interactive allows you to actually touch the different kinds of materials featured in the exhibit and learn where they came from.





Here are some pictures taken during the exhibit fabrication process!

Check out the construction!

The carpet is down and it looks fantastic!

The cases are being moved back in to the exhibit

Tim Howard taught the volunteers and staff how to properly cut out exhibit signs. Mike Noller (the CEO) even learned!
