Indigenous Perspectives on Women and Fertility

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts presents Indigenous Perspectives on Women and Fertility.

How has the female body and its ability for procreation been perceived in art and society? Women and fertility are at the center of cultures around the world—this is particularly true for Mesoamerican civilizations. Explore art and indigenous philosophies that pay homage to women and their power to create life.
