In an exhibition of some 120 rarely-seen masterpieces and recent discoveries, "Lives of the Gods: Divinity in Maya Art" will depict episodes in the life cycle of the gods, from the moment of their birth to resplendent transformations as blossoming flowers or fearsome creatures of the night.

Created by masters of the Classic period (A.D. 250-900) in the spectacular royal cities in the tropical forests of what is now Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico, these landmark works evoke a world in which the divine, human and natural realms are interrelated and intertwined. Lenders include major museum collections in Europe, Latin America and the United States.

The exhibition is organized by the Kimbell Art Museum and The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Jennifer Casler Price, curator of Asian, African and Ancient American art, will serve as the organizing curator at the Kimbell Art Museum.
