Of all the civilizations that developed in the Americas prior to European contact, only the Moche perfected true portraiture and produced it in quantity. Professor Christopher Donnan explains how Moche portraiture developed, how portraits were made and distributed, and how they functioned in Moche society. Moreover, he will provide remarkable evidence of who the individuals were that we see depicted in Moche portraits, and why they were portrayed in this way. (#8552)
