Sacred Architecture in the Americas

Sacred Architecture in the Americas at Throckmorton Fine Art in New York. "...The exhibit will include images of notable ruins from the pre-Columbian era by an accomplished group of photographers: Désiré Charnay, Teobert Maler, Henry William Jackson, Hugo Brehme, Martín Chambi, Laura Gilpin, and Marilyn Bridges. The pre-Columbian civilizations of the Americas erected buildings and monuments that were guided in their conception, design, and even their location by deeply held and all - encompassing religious beliefs. All architecture was sacred. Architecture was - and remains - a prism of the civilizations' cosmology."
