Pre-Columbian Pottery

The Luther College Fine Arts Collection contains a significant number of pre-Columbian pottery pieces, both complete and reconstructed, from Central and South America.  These works came primarily from family donations, first a group of Mexican objects came from the family of Helen Elaine Talle.  and also from the estate of Marguerite Wildenhain donated the final grouping of 21 pre-Columbian objects from Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia.
