Maya art was a courtly art, designed for both the pleasure and ritual life of the royal family and their retinue, and more often used within the rich architectural spaces that survive at the hearts of ancient Maya cities today. Using works from the first millennium AD, this talk will bring together ceramics and other hand-held objects, alongside monumental sculpture, to articulate life and death at the court of a Maya city.
Dr. Mary Miller is a renowned expert in Maya studies and dean of Yale College.
