"Lavishly illustrated with over 100 photos, the second edition of From Myth to Creation offers a dramatic insider's view of the cognitive and symbolic worlds of indigenous potters and woodworkers in a region undergoing radical change. By placing Canelos Quichua art in social and cultural context, the text invites readers to better understand and appreciate the art, aesthetics, and the historical and contemporary consciousness of indigenous Americans. This new edition includes a new foreword and chapter"-- Provided by publisher.

Extensively illustrated by more than a hundred color and black-and-white photographs, this volume presents cart, culture, and symbolism of Amazonian Ecuador from the perspective of the indigenous creators themselves.
