Treasures of the Maya Spirit was an exhibition that celebrated Maya culture and its contributions to the world. The exhibition presented more than 200 extraordinary examples of Pre-Columbian Maya Art, and featured some of the finest examples of native Guatemalan textiles, antique masks, and dance costumes, as well as contemporary works of art by prize-winning artists and anonymous artist-artisans, reflecting the Maya region´s worldview.
