Art Icons of Ancient Mexico
In this lecture, we learn about pre-Hispanic Mesoamerican art from three of its icons: Mixtec goldsmithing; the mexica plumaria; and Mayan sculpture. We'll explore tombs from Monte Albán and ancient Lakanhá, today known as Palenque. We'll see the gifts King Moctezuma offered Hernán Cortéz upon his arrival. And we'll learn how the ancient Mexican cultures live on today.
