  1. 1. MAYAN CULTURE BY: Luke Wolfe, Aaron Gamble, Shelby Hervey, & Carlee Robasciotti
  2. 2. Mayan Ceramics ● Sculptures and monuments were not only made for public view but also to express ones feelings. ● Mayan artists were figured to be in the same class as the elites in society for they shared the same literacy. ● Most of their pottery was decorated with images of humans, animals, or theological creatures. ● Their clay they used to make there pots was mixed by hand with volcanic ash. continued......

  4. 4. Cougar BowlCougar Bowl ● Cougar bowl was recreated by Luke Wolfe. ● The Mayans made a lot of pottery that had images or figures on them like this bowl. ● I created this piece because the Mayans often created pottery that showed respect to the animals who they thought helped protect them.
  5. 5. Face Pot ● The face pot was recreated by Aaron Gamble ●
  6. 6. Beast Sculpture ● The Beast Sculpture was recreated by Shelby Hervey ● I created this sculpture as a personal challenge to push my limits. I Felt it was an creation of offering to show how powerful they felt animals presence were in their lives.
  7. 7. Fish Flask ● The Fish Flask was recreated by Carlee Robasciotti. ● Not only did they use fish as food, but they also used the oils and other components to make useful tools from bones, and they also used them for trade. ● I painted it black instead of glazing it because the Mayan culture more so based their pottery and ceramics with hand made techniques.
  8. 8. ● So not only does the fish represent food, and trade, but the ability to make something that can be useful by hand.
