Today many of us transform our bodies through surgery, tattoos, piercings, or implants. People of the ancient Americas also radically modified their bodies, but these physical alterations were associated with spiritual transcendence. This exhibition includes works from cultures ranging across the Americas, from 1200 BCE to 1500 CE, illustrating metamorphosis in body and spirit.

Ellen Hoobler, William B. Ziff, Jr., Associate Curator of Art of the Americas, 1200 BCE–1500 CE, The Walters Art Museum
