Harvard University's Peabody Museum has a new online exhibition called "Masterpieces of the Peabody Museum" Based on a former gallery exhibition, the online exhibition groups selected objects by their geographic origins. The ten artifacts in the "Masterpieces from Mesoamerica" include gold items from Panama, Maya Jade, a Maya wall panel, a vessel from the Puuc region, a carved Peccary Skull from Copan and a Holmul polychrome. Descriptions for the exhibit were written by scholars including Ian Graham, Tatiana Proskouriakoff and Gordon R. Wiley. The Mesoamerica page for the exhibition can be found here.
