Hi folks.

The Mayan civilization in its classic period ca. 400-800 A.D.
developed one of the world's most sophisticated traditions
of ceramic art. Aguably it is superior in its creativity, and
equal in its quality, to classic period Greek ceramic
I've set up a website with more than 130 professional-quality
photographs of Mayan ceramics, which I think will be of interest
to some of you. If you now have no familiarity with Mayan ceramic
art you may find yourself absolutely amazed.
