Close-up photographic details of the most impressive Maya sculpture from the archaeology museums of Copan, Honduras, Central America.

FLAAR Photo Archive

Close-up detail of fangs and snout of a bizarre Maya monster. The analysis of art is termed "iconography," the study of what these monsters meant to the Maya of the 7th century A.D.

Figuring all this out is the lifelong speciality of the Director of the FLAAR Photo Archive. He got his Ph.D. in art history in Europe, and his undergraduate degree in Maya archaeology at Harvard. You can count on an enjoyable learning experience when you sign up for any FLAAR program.

To get these photographs FLAAR sent a photography crew to Honduras with a complete portable studio. With a Linhof 4x5, Wisner 4x5, several Hasselblads, Leicas, and a complete Dicomed-Better Light digital scanning camera, Nicholas Hellmuth and Andrea David did exhaustive photography in both museums.

This photography was aided in all aspects by IHAH and Professor Oscar Cruz. We appreciate the assistance of the Hotel Marina for providing a courtesy room in their annex.
