Explore beguiling and beautiful ancient Maya figurines in association with LACMA’s exhibition «Ancient Bodies: Archaeological Perspectives on Mesoamerican Figurines.» The exhibition highlights the importance of archaeological context and includes 23 exquisite figurines portraying an ancient Maya resurrection ritual recently excavated from a royal tomb at the Classic-period Maya city of El Perú-Waka’, Petén, Guatemala. The symposium features four specialists whose presentations will bring ancient Maya figurines to life through discussions of ancient ritual and politics, as well as archaeological research and conservation work associated with interpreting and preserving these miniature masterpieces.
