The aim of the book is to explore various facets of artistic expression (ranging temporally from four thousand years ago to the present day) in the Andean regions of South America, based on themes: social contexts, cultural expressions, recontextualisation, construction and meaning, and the role of art in the creation and animation of Andean landscapes.

The arrival of the Spanish in South America in 1532 permanently transformed the Andean cultural landscape. Within a generation, societies that had developed over thousands of years, including the great Inca Empire, had been irrevocably altered. The arts from the Spanish colonial period--those that drew on native traditions, such as textiles, silver, woodwork, and stonework, as well as painting, sculpture, and other genres introduced by the Spanish--preserve an unspoken dialogue that developed between Andean and European modes of expression.This beautiful
