Until February 5, 2015, the Branly Quay museum will be hosting the Mayan exhibition considered one of the richest and most ancient civilizations in America.

This exhibition that was visited by more than 400.000 people in Mexico City ans Sao Paulo, is now in Paris and aim to reveal an exceptional civilization in terms of its geographical and temporal extent.

The exhibition Mayas presents almost 400 art works from the majority of Maya territories (modern-day Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico) and from the different periods that mark the extraordinary longevity of this civilization, from the first archaeological remains (first millennium B.C.) until the present day.

The displayed objects include bas-relief and high relief sculptures, ceramic containers, lapidary art in jade, grave figurines and artifacts, jewelry, colonial documents, textiles etc... thus allow us to understand the legacy the Maya have left to humanity. 

The exhibition will give a panoramic view over the different aspects of this culture, its creative capacity and technical advancement. It offers both a general overview of this culture and shows the great variety of styles and aesthetic successes of the different Maya groups (of wich there were around 28), each of them with its own language and means of expression.
