1967 November 22 - 1967 December
"A Maya Masterpiece In Clay" featured a 13-inch clay figurine from the Maya civilization. Donated anonymously to the Museum, the figurine was considered strikingly unusual for its relaxed pose. Gordon F. Ekholm, Curator of Mexican Archeology in the Museum's Anthropology Department pointed out that "quality of movement is rare in any pre-Columbian art." The figurine, which came from the region of Campeche and dates from the late classic period of Mayan Civilization (600-900 A.D.) was on view in a "niche" at the 77th street entrance from November 22 through sometime in December, 1967.
Individuals and institutions involved in the creation of the exhibition: Dr. Gordon F. Ekholm, Cuartor of Mexican Archeology in the AMNH Antropoligy Department.
