Labor Day Monday Moment - Maya Art

Finally visited the Kimbell Art Museum last week for their Maya Divinity Art exhibit.  Truly amazing. 
Ancient art that is in glorious form. So many symbols and artistic tradition on display.  The hieroglyphs are fantastic - Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico.   Ancient civilizations that flourished and that were brilliant. 
Just look 
We look at the lives of the gods. The balance of the Sun and the Moon.  Kings. Goddesses. So many sculptures, vessels, and ornaments.  This was organized from the Met in NYC and the Kimbell.  We are so fortunate locally to have the expertise and eye to pull this together.  Thank you!

  1. Hi Joanne - this must have been so interesting ... we can always learn so much from visiting ... at least getting a glimpse of their world - attempting to comprehend life in their age. Lucky you - cheers Hilary
