Editorial Reviews

Review

The Stone & The Thread represents the first complete analysis of ancient Andean art, connecting art developments with social evolution and examining both abstract art and the archaeological evidence which helps recreate art in ancient societies. This scholarly title is recommended for college-level art and South American cultural collections: it considers symbols, design, and the evolution of artistic processes alike. -- Midwest Book Review
