Abstractions from the Ancient Americas




May 5, 2009

Institution Minneapolis Institute of Arts

Use this image collection with the MIA's "Art of the Ancient Americas" Teaching the Arts feature.

What features of the natural world are prominent where you live? Choose a land form or weather pattern you know well. Let it be the inspiration for an abstract pattern to decorate the surface of a pot. Review these examples from the ancient Americas. What natural features do these examples suggest to you? What do you see that makes you say that?
