Exquisite pottery from most major pre-Columbian cultures is the backbone of Santiago's best museum, the Museo Chileno de Arte Precolombino. As well as dozens of intricately molded anthropomorphic vessels, star exhibits include hefty Maya stone stele and a fascinating Andean textile display.

More unusual are the wooden vomit spatulas used by Amazonian shamans before taking psychoactive powders.
