Casa Santo Domingo Museum

Whilst wandering around the Casa Santo Domingo last Friday we paid a visit to its Museo de Vigua which houses a permanent collection of superb Pre-Colombian artworks juxtaposed with modern pieces made from glass.

The highlight for me was the set of stunning ceramics from Guatemala's southern coast, all bearing the marks of long-range influence by the mysterious civilisation of Teotithuacan, in distant central Mexico.

I also spotted a couple of large urns that I last saw and photographed back in '89 in the Francisco Marroquin museum in Guatemala City.
