Friday Photos: Mystery Artwork Series

September 16, 2011

Are you tired of pulling your hair out and biting your nails in order to know this week’s Mystery Artwork?  Never fear, for I have the answer!  Last week’s Mystery Artwork is…Mantle with condors

Mantle with Condors, Peru, c. 300-100 B.C., The Eugene and Margaret McDermott Art Fund, Inc.

Interested in multicultural fashion?  Check out Art and Fashion, a teacher workshop in conjunction with The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk.

Now, for the third puzzler.  Just as before, I have given you a rhyme and an altered image of the mystery object.  You have one week to search through our online collection, or go gallivanting through the galleries.  Next Friday, I will reveal the mystery object and present the final Mystery Artwork.

Brilliant colors of red and yellow,
I depict a scene of an active fellow.
A rubber ball he hits,
With the swing of his hips,
This game is an ancient Mayan ritual.

Come out tonight for a Late Night at the DMA and see if you can locate this object.  Here is a helpful hint: you can find this object on the fourth floor.

Wishing you a playful perusing,

Loryn Leonard
Coordinator of Museum Visits
