Item description for Ecuador: The Secret Art of Precolumbian Ecuador by Daniel Klein, Ivan Cruz Cevallos, Miguel Angel Cabodevilla Iribarren, Leon Doyon & Richard Lunniss...

This beautifully-illustrated book features some of the most magnificent works of art produced by the people that inhabited the present territory of Ecuador before the arrival of the Spaniards. Ecuador, the territory where an important part of pre-Columbian thought was formed, is a place of contact and cultural dissemination between societies from the southern part of the continent, Peruvians and from the north, Mesoamericans. Located in the middle of the world, it is influenced by natural phenomena such as the mix of the cold Humboldt ocean current with the warm El Nio current. At the same time, its territory is divided by the Andes, giving shape to a couple of impressive mountain ranges that drain into the Pacific humid forest, as well as into the Amazon jungle. Factors like these bring a huge richness to the ecosystem which pre-Columbian humans had to respond to, producing stunning cultural expressions. A picture of this mosaic of settlements, which fostered exchange in ceremonies and cult obje

Reviews - What do customers think about Ecuador: The Secret Art of Precolumbian Ecuador?

precolumbian Ecuador- clay and gold  May 31, 2008
The art of precolumbian Ecuador is not widely understood, particularly if you compare this wonderful world to the far more widely known clay and gold from ancient Peru. And, for sure, the former is not less intriguing than the latter if you get involved in trying to read, on clay and gold, the history of those fascinating populations. This book fills an important bibliographic gap and, in my opinion, it was worthwhile to wait so long to finally see such a beautiful publication! From Valdivia to the Inca, all of the regional artistic "desarrollo" unfolds under the reader's eye, with hundreds of perfect pictures making the most exhaustive complement to a text well written, thoroughly clear and detailed although never academic (and boring). Really a beautiful, and important, book!
