More About Chavin by Peter Fux
 
 
 
Overview
A series of recent excavations has revealed the monumental sacred structures of the Chavin culture, whose people populated the coastal regions of Peru on thousand years before the Inca and which is regarded today as the mother culture of the Andes. The most magnificent of these structures is the temple at Chavin de Huantar, which is built of ornately carved stone. In 1985 the complex at Chavin de Huantar was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, but archaeologists have continued to discover artifacts such as sculptures, religious vessels, jewelry, and textiles. This book offers a comprehensive overview of the site, including maps, plans, and photographs. Essays examine the layout of the temple and the key concepts behind Chavin architecture. Also included is a full catalogue of the 170 artifacts found at Chavin. Published to coincide with the first ever exhibition on the culture of Chavin de Huantar at the Museum Rietberg in Zurich, this volume offers an up-to-date account of the archaeological findings at this important but lesser known site.
