Lecture by Dr. John E. Clark, "Olmec Rituals and Beliefs"

April 30, 2011 -

Jade artifacts have provided critical direct and indirect evidence for reconstructing parts of Olmec rituals and beliefs. This presentation surveys the range of Olmec jade artifacts and their functions and meanings, with a focus on jade axes and their non-utilitarian uses. Jade objects were placed in special offerings and burials.  Others are depicted on stone monuments or inscribed with special depictions themselves.
