The Davis Museum recently acquired a rare example of Aztec art: a stone block with carved images of feathered serpents that once formed part of a ceremonial building. On the 500th anniversary of the fall of Tenochtitlan to the Spanish invaders, join Senior Lecturer and Adjunct Curator James Oles and three leading scholars of the ancient Americas--Barbara Mundy (Tulane University), Megan O’Neil (Emory University), and Ellen Hoobler ‘98 (Walters Art Museum). This distinguished panel will speak about the history and significance of the sculpture: from its original placement and its first documented appearance in Los Angeles in the 1940s to its role in the permanent collection of the Davis.
