The Jade Masks of the Maya

The Jade Masks of the Maya

January 26 - June 10, 2012

Pinacothèque de Paris

The Pinacothèque continues its exploration of Pre-Columbian and Meso-American cultures. Following the success of the exhibition The Incas’s Gold : Origins and Mysteries, the Pinacothèque de Paris is showing the most important archeological discovery of the past decade in Mexico : masks made of jade mosaic. These outstanding masks, entirely restored by the most eminent specialists in Mayan archeology, represent the deities’ faces. Created for the governors of the most prestigious lost Mayan cities, they had the mission to ensure eternal life to these dignitaries after their death.
