Item description for Chavin: Art, Architecture and Culture (Monographs) by William J. Conklin & Jeffrey Quilter...
This book is the first in more than a decade to provide new information on the Chavn phenomenon of ancient Peru. Thought by some to be the "Mother Culture" of ancient Peruvian cultures, Chavn is remarkable for its baroque, sophisticated art style in a variety of media including, finely carved stone monuments, beautifully formed pottery, and magnificent and complex metallurgy. Chapters in this book cover new interpretations of the history of the site of Chavn de Huantar, studies of related cultures, the role of shamanism, and many other topics of interest to specialists and the general reader, alike.
