Zapotec Effigy Urns

This paper aims to provide a detailed examination of three artefacts (WCMA 76.29.2.B, WAM 1985.70, YUAG 1973.88.18) featured in the exhibition The Seeds of Divinity, presented by the Williams College Museum of Art from January to August 2018. The physical attributes and symbolic meanings of these objects will be examined in their historical contexts, and the functions they may have served in the societies that created them will be explored. In doing so, this paper hopes to uncover aspects of Pre-Columbian spirituality and worldview through the physical objects they left behind.
