Secrets of Casas Grandes by Melissa Powell
Book DescriptionThis catalogue -- published to coincide with an exhibition at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture -- explores the acclaimed ceramic traditions of the largest pre-Columbian civilisation in northern Mexico. Casas Grandes, located in present-day Chihuahua, was a major regional centre during the thirteen and fourteenth centuries that blended elements of the Pueblo culture to the north and Mesoamerican civilisations to the south. Leading archaeologists discuss the geometric polychrome vessels, representational pots, and effigy pots that display a spectacular ceramic artistry, and give rare insight into an ancient culture just beginning to receive its archaeological due.
