This lecture is an invitation to discover our kaleidoscopic world—a continuously changing pattern of shapes and colors, brilliant and resplendent as well as soft and muted. Light makes color visible during the bright morning or the soft glow of the late afternoon, creating intriguing shadows that are a prelude to the darkness and silence of the night.

Daring and enduring architectural achievements in cities and ceremonial centers; portrayals of war, ritual, and belief; monumental and intimate renderings of the noble and the lowly in ceramic, stone, and paint—Maya artists and master builders created a visual world whose remnants still move us with their perception, power, and imagination.
