The Splendor of Ancient Maya Hieroglyphs

February 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Attached is an image of an ancient Mayan vase-like artifact with orange, tan, and black glyphs and patterns. To the left of this photograph is a brown box containing the following information in white text: 'Talks and Lectures: Mark van Stone: Mayan Glyphs', 'Wednesday, February 20, 7 pm, Free', 'Utah Museum of Fine Arts'.

Explore the mystery and beauty of Mayan hieroglyphs with epigrapher Mark Van Stone, professor of art history at Southwestern College. Over the past decades, the ongoing translation of this unique writing system has revealed insight into the Maya, from the victories of kings to names of demons to the writings on a personalized chocolate drinking vessel.
