This wide-ranging survey has established itself as the best singlevolume introduction to Andean art and architecture, and is an essential guide to pre-Columbian Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia for the general reader, student, traveler, and artist alike. Describing the strikingly varied artistic achievements of the Chav#65533;n, Paracas, Moche, Nasca, Chimu, and Inca cultures, among others, Rebecca Stone has rewritten and expanded the text throughout, touching on many of the recent discoveries and advances in the field. Throughout this fully revised third edition, Stone demonstrates how the Andean peoples adapted and refined their aesthetic response to a formidable and demanding environment and explored the interface between the terrestrial and the otherworldly according to the value they placed on shamanic religious experience.
