Past Exhibition

Creating the Human Form

March 16 – May 18, 2002

The exhibition will feature a range of terracotta and stone figurines that date from 1500 B.C.E. to the Spanish Conquest, a recent gift to Willamette University from Caroline Tupper. These distinctive and exquisite statuettes demonstrate the different ways in which the human body was viewed, represented, adorned, and understood by the many cultures of ancient Mexico.
