Divine and Human: Women in Ancient Mexico and Peru examines the important and varied roles played by women in a “Who’s Who” of the major civilizations of ancient Mesoamerica and in the Andean region, including the Aztec, Mayan, Zapotec, Moche, Mixtec, and Incan cultures.
The more than 400 objects comprising this exhibition, including sculptures, textiles, pottery, jewelry, and grave goods, attest to the powerful, but often overlooked roles women played in both the daily and spiritual life of their respective societies. Women were not only daughters, wives, mothers and grandmothers, but were also healers, midwives, scribes, artists, poets, priestesses, warriors, and governors; some were even considered goddesses.
