World Art:
Art of the Americas
 



The American continent is the longest land mass in the world yet its indigenous people have cultural affinities, even if civilisations emerged in various times and places. This set displays traditional and contemporary designs and artefacts from North, Central and South America, including a pre-Inca pot, an Aztec skull and native American ceremonial objects.
