This wide-ranging survey has established itself as the best single-volume introduction to Andean art and architecture. Now fully revised and entirely redesigned, it describes the strikingly varied artistic achievements of the Chavin, Paracas, Moche, Chimu and Inca cultures, among others. Their impressive cities, tall pyramids, shining goldwork and intricate textiles constitute one of the greatest artistic traditions in history. For the revised edition, Professor Stone-Miller has added new material covering the earliest mummification in the world at Chinchorros, wonderful new Moche murals and architectural reconstructions, the latest finds from the Chachapoyas culture, and a greater emphasis on shamanism. Throughout Stone-Miller demonstrates how Andean peoples adapted and redefined their aesthetic response to an extremely inhospitable environment.
