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

Works added to the collection of the Department of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas during the past five years include objects from all of the three large geographic areas. Varied in date, place, material, and function, the selection illustrates the Departmentís breadth of collecting interests.

The exhibition will range from a group of Christian crosses made of brass by the Kongo peoples of Angola/Democratic Republic of Congo from the 16th to the 19th century, when Catholicism and the introduction of Christian icons led to a local transformation of the western prototype; to personal ornaments of gold, shell, and seeds from Island South East Asia; to works of ceramic made by the Maya peoples of the tropical lowlands of Mexico/Guatemala more than a thousand years ago.
