Wari: Pre-Inca Lords of Peru

February 10, 2013May 19, 2013

Wari’s capital is one of the largest archaeological sites in South America. From AD 600 and 1000, its denizens created an exhilarating episode in the history of the Americas by forging a society now widely regarded as one of the western hemisphere’s first empires. The exhibition showcases textiles that are among the most complex ever made in the Andes; fine ceramics; delicate ornaments of precious metal, shell, or bone; and small, masterful sculptures of stone or wood.

Wari: Pre-Inca Lords of Peru was organized by the Cleveland Museum of Art, supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
