A Cross-Cultural Aviary
by admin published Dec 08, 2011 last modified Jul 03, 2012 10:06 AM — filed under: , ,
Birds abound in the arts of the ancient Americas. Soaring falcons, fish-eating sea birds, hovering hummingbirds, and brilliantly colored parrots captured the imagination of peoples from Mesoamerica to the Andes. Poised for flight or perched with regal bearing, birds take pride of place on many textiles, sculptures, and jewelry. This section of the exhibition features objects from the Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine and Pre-Columbian Collections.
