The Kimbell organizes "The Blood of Kings: A New Interpretation of Maya Art"

One of the Museum’s most groundbreaking exhibitions, The Blood of Kings penetrated the world and mind of the Maya as no previous show had. Making full use of the tremendous progress in deciphering Maya hieroglyphic script that took place after 1960, the exhibition revealed for the first time the specific ritualistic and dynastic meaning of Maya art and showcased 110 rare Ancient American masterpieces.
