PRECOLUMBIAN FLORA AND FAUNA included ancient and contemporary Mesoamerican sculptures in stone, ceramic, jade and wood. On loan from thirty-one museums and private collections, these objects express man’s symbolic use of natural forms.

The exhibition was funded in part by The California Arts Council, the City of San Diego, the County of San Diego, Mingei International Corporate Associates and Mingei International’s Director’s Circle.

The Mingei International documentary publication, The Mingei International documentary publication, PRE-COLUMBIAN FLORA AND FAUNA: Continuity of Plant and Animal Themes in Mesoamerican Art, was authored by Dr. Peterson and Judith Strupp Green.
