Imágenes de una memoria

by Paulina Faba Zuleta

For the Huichol, graphic representations have a mythic function: animal petroglyphs refer to a lineage that, in the form of rain and fire, manifests itself on earth; geometric figures such as the spiral recreate the matrix of the world, the emergence of ancestors, or the concept of time. This volume translates the discourse of rock art from Sierra Nevada del Nayar, and delves into practices associated with the images, revealing how the Huichol think about the past and the function of petroglyphs in local memory. In Spanish.
