About the presentation: Long before Columbus's initial voyage across the Atlantic, and even before the rise of the Incan civilization, along the coast of Peru existed politically independent groups aligned under the same ideology and artistic iconography. The Moche people of Peru were exquisite artists and architects who, despite not leaving any written records behind, have fascinated archaeologists and art historians for years. Explore the rise and fall of the Moche people as told through artifacts, including some from our own Collection.
