Description

The Acervo series spreads the aesthetic antique heritage through beautifully illustrated children's books. "NanaquE" offers a look into the culture of rock art. The images are re-created using the same techniques and symbolism. NanaquE is out with his tribe, collecting fruit, firewood, and honey when he wanders from the group and encounters a wild boar. He tries to defend himself with his arrow until he finds shelter in a cave. In the dark, alone, without food or water, NanaquE paints on the walls. He waits until the wounded boar dies before he leaves the cave and returns to his tribe, a hero.show more

Review Text

La colección Acervo continúa difundiendo el patrimonio estético europeo con un álbum ilustrado infantil que en esta ocasión ofrece la visión del mundo de las culturas rupestres. Las imágenes recrean las técnicas de arte rupestre, como el soplado o el pincel hecho con un palo de punta machacada, para representar el mundo simbólico del paleolítico. Nanaquë ha salido con su tribu a recoger frutos, leña y miel, pero en un descuido se aparta de su gente y se topa con un jabalí. Nanaquë se defiende con un flechazo que hiere a la bestia y debe refugiarse en una cueva. En la oscuridad, a solas, sin comida ni bebida, Nanaquë pinta en las paredes. Espera hasta que el jabalí muere. El colmillo de jabalí que cuelga de su cuello hace que en la tribu lo reciban como un héroe.show more
