Fine Arts | Art of Pre-Columbian America
A452 | 2192 | McNaughton
This course explores some of the most stunning, dramatic, complex and
subtle art the world has ever seen. From the Olmecs to the Aztecs it
moves through hundreds of years of profoundly thought-provoking sculpture,
architecture, ceramics and paintings, with the goad of understanding the
aesthetics, philosophy and social realities that brought the art into
being. Some have asked how societies that allegedly practice human
sacrifice could create things of such deep abiding beauty.
The answer can be found in this course.
