New Smarthistory videos featuring two Metropolitan Museum curators

Mirror-Bearer, 6th century (Classic Maya), wood and red hematite, 35.9 x 22.9 x 22.9 cm (The Metropolitan Museum of Art)

We are excited to announce that Smarthistory has published six new videos co-created with curators from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. These videos help to fill critical gaps in our coverage of the art of the Pacific Islands and the art of the ancient Maya.

We want to thank The Metropolitan Museum of Art for their generosity!

Here are links to the videos on Smarthistory, but they are also embedded below.
