Visions of the Nazca: The Evolution of Painted Images in an Ancient Andean Society
Description:

This is an FSU student run exhibit of Pre-Columbian Nazca pottery, focusing on the evolution of motifs.

 
A class of undergraduate students in Museum Studies from Florida State University Department of Art History present an exhibit titled: Visions of the Nazca: The Evolution of Painted Images in an Ancient Andean Society: a group of pre-Colombian, pottery made by the Nazca between the 1st and 7th century A.D. in the southern coast of Peru that features stunning motifs related to cultural aspects and religious beliefs. Through the exhibit, different painted motifs and their significance are explored by presenting the evolution of Nazca ceramic art through time, along with an explanation of the creative process for the production of Nazca pottery.
