"African, Oceanic, and Ancient American Art: Recent Acquisitions"
2001-05-22 until 2001-10-28
Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York, NY, USA

Ranging from 19th-century Christian crosses made by the Kongo peoples of Africa to ancient Mayan ceramics, this exhibition demonstates the breadth and diversity of additions made to the Museum's collection of African, Oceanic, and Native American art during the past five years.

On view will be a selection of works added to the collection of the Museum's Department of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas over the past five years. Varied in date, place, material, and function, the objects range from a group of Christian crosses made of brass from the 16th to the 19th century by the Kongo peoples of Angola/Democratic Republic of Congo, to personal ornaments of gold, shell, and seeds from Island Southeast Asia, to ceramic works made by the Maya peoples of Mexico/Guatemala more than a thousand years ago.
