Maya art expert, Virginia Miller, if the University of Illinois at Chicago, will give a lecture in which she examines the meaning of such motifs as skeletons and skulls in the carved reliefs and painted murals found at the site of Chichén Itzá in the Yucatán region of Mexico. She will explore the reasons for the upsurge of graphic death imagery between A.D. 800 and 1000, and consider whether the northern Maya, who lived at Chichén Itzá, practiced human sacrifice on a large scale, perhaps foreshadowing later Aztec practices.
