Pre-Columbian Art from Central America

January 25 – April 12, 1987

Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery

In many ways the stone sculpture of the Diquis zone is markedly different from that of the other archaeological zones of Costa Rica. The art of this complex Costa Rican civilization, characterized by an artistic stylization that reflects an extraordinary understanding of the decorative qualities of abstract design, is reflected in such artifacts as ceramic vessels and peg-base figurines; which were often used in rituals, musical instruments, carved stone metates used to grind corn, zoomorphic effigies, and the famous stone spheres.
