The ancient Maya were a Mesoamerican civilization that extended from modern-day southern Mexico through Central America. At the height of their achievement during the Classic period (c. 250 to 900), written texts facilitated communication among Maya royal courts. The unique signs (glyphs) are in the form of humans, animals, mythical, objects, and abstract designs that express meaning or sounds, and are used to write words, phrases, and sentences.
Viewing examples of Mayan ceramics from LACMA’s permanent collection, learn about the Maya civilization and the use of hieroglyphs for both decoration and communication, and create your own clay pictographs.
