內容簡介

Tiwanaku: Papers from the 2005 Mayer Center Symposium at the Denver Art Museum
Young-S獺nchez (chief curator, Denver Art Museum) presents 11 papers from a January 2005 symposium held in conjunction with the Denver Art Museum's exhibition, Tiwanaku: Ancestors of the Incas, in which current research was presented on Tiwanaku, the archaeological site in western Bolivia that was the location of an ancient pre-Incan city- state. The conference's presentations discuss the evolution of the city's architectural plan, Tiwanaku's stone working and building techniques, changing perceptions and interpretations of the Gateway of the Sun monument, the Tiwanaku calendar and its relationship to the later Incan calendar, iconic dimensions in Tiwanaku art, the economic and political significance of Tiwanaku-affiliated communities outside the Titicaca basin, identity and its expression in the borderlands of Tiwanaku and the neighboring Wari state, the typology of Tiwanaku and Wari iconography, social rank and the imagery of Wari tapestry tunics, and the predecessors of Inca ushnus (ceremonial pyramids) in Tiwanaku society. Distributed in the US by the U. of Oklahoma Press. Annotation 穢2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
