The show and this catalog also deal with a previously, and still, little touched upon aspect of Maya culture and art. The role of the sea and water in the Maya mythos and cosmos.
You cannot view the images and read the material and not be struck by the similarity of some of the works, and by the similarity to the beliefs (or what we think we know of the beliefs) of the Mississippian culture. But, that of course is beyond the aim and exploration of this exhibition and catalog. For those who are interested in the Maya, it would be a mistake not to take a look at this book.
