In Fauna fantástica de Mesoamérica y los Andes, the animals under study are alive and approach people's destiny: they summarize their history, tradition and weaknesses to strengthen the sociocultural environment that they inhabit, and are capable of interpreting the present, but also of envisioning the future. The papers in this book offer a rigorous analysis of the relationship between the animal world and humankind's religiosity. The book, thus, masterfully presents an amazing variety of mythical animals and highlights the vitality of the wonderful cultures that embraced the cult of these beings. In Spanish.
