    DescriptionProviding an original overview covering nearly 4,000 years of history, the book includes approximately 350 works reproduced in lush colour illustrations: a large selection of pre-Columbian treasures, masterpieces dating from the colonial era and striking modern paintings and sculptures from the first half of the 20th century, many reproduced here for the first time. The book is divided into three sections: the mythologies and rituals of ancient Andean civilizations; their perpetuation, concealment, or hybridisation with Catholicism during the 18th and 19th centuries; and the rediscovery of Peruvian popular traditions and faiths in the 20th century, mainly due to the popular Indigenist movement. All these themes are explored through essays by more than 20 international contributors.
