July 9, 8 pm: Public IMS Ancient Maya Cities Series Presentation:
Ancient Maya Cities with Mural Paintings – with Dr. Anne Stewart
Many ancient Maya cities had murals. Just how did they paint them, what was the basis of the pigments, and what was the subject matter that was presented? We will be looking not only at the well-documented surviving murals at sites such as Bonampak and San Bartolo, but also examples encountered at lesser-known sites, as well as some murals that were recorded by early archaeologists that no longer exist.
