Mesoamerican | Polychrome vase | Duke University Museum of Art | Kerr Archive

ARTstor has collaborated with Justin Kerr and Barbara Kerr to share more than 500 photographs of Pre-Columbian artifacts in the Digital Library. The collection consists of still and rollout photographs of vases, plates, and bowls from the various cultures of Mesoamerica. The rollouts—which show the entire surface of an object in a single frame—were made by photographer Justin Kerr with a camera he designed and built. The objects in the collection depict a variety of everyday Mayan activities and religious concepts, and stem from archaeological sites, museums, and collections throughout Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, the United States, Canada, and Europe.
