Moche Art and Archaeology in Ancient Peru
Edited by Joanne Pillsbury
Out of Print.
“This volume represents a landmark in Moche studies.”—George Bankes, The Journal of The Royal Anthropological Institute
Centuries before the rise of the Inca, the Moche created impressive monumental architecture and precious metal objects (c. A.D. 100–800). New discoveries about this ancient coastal civilization have recently been uncovered at several sites in Peru—including the richest unlooted tomb ever discovered in the New World. This fascinating book examines these records and analyzes connections between the visual arts and political representation in Moche culture.
Joanne Pillsbury is director of pre-Columbian studies at Dumbarton Oaks.
