Art Of The Andes - Pre-Columbian Painted and Sculpted Ceramics
Pre-Columbian Sculptured and Painted Ceramics from the Arthur M. Sackler Collections


“…in one of the worst examples of imperial exploitative savagery, an ‘advanced’ European nation brought down the indigenous ancient civilizations of Peru and Mexico…-the thoughtless greed with which they melted down objects of the greatest beauty, a heritage of all mankind, into gold bullion-and the brutality with which, in the name of faith, they destroyed the culture of other peoples seven to eight thousand miles from their own country.”
