Music and dance in Pre-Columbian Art

The exhibition shows a selection of artefacts from the museum’s unique Pre-Columbian collection, collected by the founders, Marie-Louise and Gunnar Didrichsen.

On display are different kinds of musical instruments and ritual objects from the Mayas, Olmecs, Western Mexico, Veracruz and e.g. Nasca and Moche cultures from South America. The exhibition is made in collaboration with illustrator Ella Brigatti.
