Los Angeles – LACMA – Maya Ceramics

While at LACMA (see previous post) we also visited the exhibition titled “Revealing Creation: The Science and Art of Ancient Maya Ceramics”. As well as some amazing ceramics, also on display were some painted deerskin scrolls that tell historical narratives or other stories.

The scroll shown here is a facsimile of a scroll that was produced around the 15th century and which is now in the collection of the British Museum Library, London.
