Susan E. Bergh (Curator of Pre-Columbian and Native North American Art at the Cleveland Museum of Art)
Between 600 and 1000, long before the Inca, the Wari forged a complex society widely regarded today as ancient Peru’s first empire. Wari: Lords of the Ancient Andes, the first exhibition of its kind in North America, opens up this exciting yet virtually unknown episode in ancient American history through 150 startlingly beautiful art works in all major Wari media: masterful ceramics; precious ornaments made of inlays or gold and silver; sculpture; and sumptuous garments from one of the world’s most distinguished textile traditions. This catalogue to the exhibition presents in full color all of the amazing items in full color illustrations, and sheds more light on this early civilization.
