Ancient Ceramics of the New World

January 5 – January 29, 1984

Maltwood Art Gallery

This exhibition featured 50 examples of Pre-Columbian ceramic work. In the two and a half millennia that preceded the Spanish conquest, the peoples of the New World made pottery in great quantity. Much of this production consisted of ordinary utilitarian vessels. However, sacred vessels which embodied cosmological, philosophical and religious beliefs were also produced.

The exhibition draws from the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts collection. The vessels, figures and objects displayed are the creations of civilizations who inhabited the area between Mexico and Chile during the period 1000 B.C. to 1550 A.D.
