Animal Myth and Magic: Images from Pre-Columbian
The ancient Andean universe was alive with myth and pulsing with animate energy. In pre-Columbian traditions, nature and culture were inseparable – a belief that found its richest expression through intense symbolic identification with the animal world. Andean societies incorporated animals and animal imagery into ceremony and costume, ritual space and experience, social life and economy. Animals have shaped Andean peoples’ vision of themselves, and of their shamans and rulers. They signified prestige, spiritual power, and contact with the supernatural. Animals also figured prominently among the constellations of the southern sky, as characters in myth and folklore, and in acts of divination and sacrifice. These connections forge the most vivid metaphors and icons of Andean ritual and art. Animal Myth and Magic explores the central place and significance of animals in the Andean cosmovision through the prism of South American archaeology, anthropology, natural history and mythology. Illustrated with 155 marvelous images from pre-Columbian textiles, this unique anthology discusses over forty-five species, from the hummingbird and butterfly to the llama and jaguar. The depictions-from surreal to naturalistic, are awe-provoking to whimsical, abstract to totemic-span a diversity...

PreColumbian Textile Conference VII / Jornadas de Textiles PreColombinos
From May 31st to June 4th, 2016, the 7th International European conference on pre-Columbian textiles was held in Copenhagen. This volume unites seven original articles on pre-Columbian textiles from Mexico, which compare information on 20th century finds first described by Alba Guadelupe Mastache with that from previously unpublished finds and recently discovered contexts. A unique chapter presents the technical analysis and replication of a pre-Columbian tunic recovered in a cave site in Arizona, at the northern margins of the Mesoamerican interaction sphere. Thirteen articles on archaeological textiles from the central Andes include analysis of both textile assemblages preserved in museum collections and those recovered during recent fieldwork in archaeological sites of the Andean desert coast. These include textile assemblages representing the Initial and Formative Periods, Paracas and Nasca contexts, the Middle Horizon, diverse late Intermediate Period assemblages and emblematic Inca garments.

Peruvian Featherworks: Art of the Precolumbian
Of universal appeal and great beauty, Peruvian featherworking was part of a highly sophisticated textile tradition spanning several thousand years. Although these rare treasures, which include vibrantly colored and detailed garments, headdresses, personal ornaments, and ritual objects, have been admired and collected by connoisseurs for decades, this unusual and exquisite art form has not been much investigated or published.Peruvian Featherworks, a magnificently illustrated publication, is the first in-depth and authoritative review of featherworking traditions in Ancient Peru. Written by seven international experts in the textile arts and archaeology, the texts include a discussion of important recent discoveries, considerations of iconography, and basic technical characteristics of featherworks. Nearly seventy outstanding pieces are discussed, as well as evidence of feather mosaic on textiles and other media in most major Andean cultures, from the Paracas (about 600–100 B.C.) through the Inca (1470–1534).

Shamans, Supernaturals & Animal Spirits: Mythic Figures From the Ancient
Shamans, Supernaturals and Animal Spirits is a unique visual encyclopedia exploring the mythical and shamanic figures represented in the extraordinary textile art of the pre-Columbian civilizations of the Andes. Over a span of 2000 years, textile artists –– weavers, embroiderers, painters and dyers –– gave vivid form to the multitude of fantastical supernatural personages and animals that populated the imaginations, cosmologies, cultural narratives, and ritual traditions of the ancient Andean peoples. Illustrated with over 400 fully annotated color plates, the 2 volume set traces the aesthetic and symbolic evolution of this visionary iconography. The images of otherworldly divinities, ancestral icons, warlords, warriors, surreal beings and animal archetypes conceived by the Chavín, Paracas, Wari, Chimú, Inka and other major cultures (from 500 BC – AD 1530) were depicted with intricate detail and superb color. Costumed ritualists, trancing shamans, shapeshifters, and animals with symbolic characteristics and powers (such as jaguars, hawks, killer whales, and snakes) express the core notion of spiritual metamorphosis that shaped ancient Andean religious cults dedicated to oracles, hallucinogenic rituals, ancestral veneration, and reverence for the forces embodied in...

Pre-Columbian Woven Treasures in the National Museum of
Pizarro's conquest of Peru in 1532 and his subsequent introduction of the Catholic Church obliterated Incan civilisation. One great loss was textile traditions that had been evolving for millennia during the rise and fall of numerous cultures. Fortunately for textile historians, the region's prehistoric peoples left thousands of mummies buried in the desert, some of them wrapped in more than a hundred pieces of cloth. These mummy bundles show that pre-Columbian Peruvians had mastered all the textile technologies known to preindustrial Europe, as well as others unknown there, such as discontinuous warp and double wrap techniques. This volume examines the items in the National Museum's collection of pre-Columbian textiles, some of them dating back to 500 BCE. Bjerregaard provides a brief but intriguing history of these finds, which were recovered from graves about a century ago by archaeologists, amateurs and thieves. A technical analysis of the various weaving techniques follows, accompanied by helpful illustrations. Most of the book, however, is devoted to the finds themselves, which feature figurative and mythic as well as abstract patterns. For each item, there is a detailed description, a fibre analysis and at least one photograph. A number of colour photos attest to the surpr...

Paracas Ritual Attire: Symbols of Authority in Ancient Peru (Civilization of the American Indian
The richly embroidered Paracas fabrics were discovered early in the 20th century by grave robbers who introduced the ritual garments to collectors around the world. Hundreds of these fabrics survive as artistic documents of a society in which cloth and costume were essential forms of visual communication. Paul discusses how the weaving functioned symbolically, conveying information about the world view of ancient Paracas society and the social role of its leaders. Abundantly illustrated with line drawings and color photos. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.

The Casma City of El Purgatorio: Ancient Urbanism in the Andes (Ancient Cities of the New
“Defines the Casma culture and demonstrates its importance in late Andean prehistory for the north coast of Peru. Vogel’s pioneering work at El Purgatorio sets the stage for anticipated future studies.”—Thomas Pozorski, University of Texas-Pan American “This detailed study fills a major gap in coastal Andean prehistory while also addressing broader issues of ancient urbanism and the variability of urban forms in pre-industrial societies.”—Daniel H. Sandweiss, University of Maine The Casma state, which flourished on the north coast of Peru in the centuries before European contact, is an important and vastly understudied ancient culture. Its capital city, El Purgatorio, was inhabited from ca. 700–1400 AD. The rise and fall of El Purgatorio spans a period of dynamic transition in Andean history but has rarely been mentioned in previous research. Melissa Vogel investigates this extensive, monumental urban site in The Casma City of El Purgatorio. Using the city’s architecture and spatial organization, its rituals, religion, and mortuary practices, its political economy, and other material evidence, she describes the people who lived there. A culmination of Vogel’s sixteen-year study of the Casma culture, this book demonstrates how ancie...
