Portfolio: Ancient Andean Arts Gallery

This gallery displays works of ancient Andean art. There are a wide range of cultures and aesthetic styles that flourished throughout the coastal and highland regions of Peru from 1500 BCE to the Spanish conquest of 1532 CE, including Chavin, Paracas, Nazca, Moche, Wari, Huwara, Lambayeque, Chimu, Chancay, and Inka. The artworks currently on view are grouped by the culture and period of their makers and feature an exquisite array of ceremonial vessels, textiles, metalwork, and jewelry associated with the burial sites and ritual centers of vast tributary states. This gallery is located on the lower level of the Kinkead Pavilion Building.
