The Divine Heart of Things

Pre-Columbian Art from the Ludwig Collection

Published by Walther König, Köln
Edited and with foreword by Klaus Schneider. Introduction by Anne Slenczka. Text by Christiane Clados, Stefanie Teufel, María Teresa Cervantes de Braginski, Andrea Ruf, Anne Slenczka.

This catalogue presents around 200 artifacts from Irene and Peter Ludwig’s collection of pre-Columbian art from the Americas. The works are organized thematically and ethnically, looking at pottery of the Mimbres culture; Mayan works in jade and the diversity of cultures in postclassic Western Mesoamerica (Toltecs, Aztecs, Mixtecs, Zapotecs and Tarascans); the development of early cultures in the Central Andes; ancient Peruvian erotic sculpture; metallurgy in the pre-Hispanic Andes; ritual drinking and libation; and many other topics and genres. A final section considers the appropriation of the pre-Columbian past throughout history and in the present. Also included are timelines of ancient American cultures. The Ludwig Collection today is part of the Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum in Cologne.
