Learn more about the ancient Mayans with Dr. Margaret Jackson.

Dr. Margaret Jackson, Professor of Ancient American Art History at UNM, will give a lecture on the monumental art of Tikal, Guatemala.

Do monuments tell stories? This lecture introduces the relationship between kingship and monumental art at the site of Tikal, Guatemala. For over 1000 years, the kings and queens of Tikal created art and monuments celebrating themselves and their lineages. Maya artists recorded names, dates and events in an elegant visual vernacular that today provides surprisingly detailed information about Maya lives and adventures. Tikal’s famous pyramids, stelae and acropolis allow us to consider what royal display, art and architecture may (or may not) tell us about Maya dynastic history. Several key examples of how this is visible will be explored in this lecture.
