Описание: A symbol of power and prestige in ancient Peru, silver also held religious significance, its soft cool sheen symbolising the moon, a female deity. This beautiful
book presents objects of silver - items of personal adornment, tomb offerings, and miniatures - from several Peruvian cultures that thrived along the coastal and highland regions of the
Andes from the first millennium B.C. to the Spanish conquest of 1532-34.
Excavated from the sites of such cultures as the Moche, the Lambayeque, the Chimu, and the Inka,
these extremely rare and lovely objects of silver shed new light on a fascinating civilization. This book was published in conjunction with an exhibition held in the fall of 2000 at The
Metropolitan Museum of Art

Описание: Lawrence Weiner (born 1942) began his career as an artist in the early 1960s, traveling across the U.S., Mexico, Canada and eventually to Europe, furnishing himself with an ad hoc education on the way. He soon turned away from any conception of art as requiring a production of objects and focused instead on constructing new ways of perceiving language. Today, Weiner works with almost any medium, from books and movies to public and private installations, on grand and small scales. Throughout, drawing has been a core practice, and Written on the Wind comprehensively documents his works on paper for the first time, including installation plans, book layouts, notes and technical drawings. In collaboration with book designer Filiep Tacq, Weiner has designed a plate section for the volume that consists of more than 120 drawings presented within sequences of gestural graphics to provide a narrative, "drawn" chapter.
