Product and Description of this

Sacred Valley of the Incas Book


Published 2004

Fernando and Edgar Elorrieta Salazar introduce the world to a new and profound view of Andean myths that they have decoded and converted into history and reality by studying semiotics, aesthetics, and archaeoastronomy.

Cultural myths function as a way of conceptualizing and organizing something a group holds in common. Its connotation is ideological and serves to cause one to believe that this “something,” whether it be shared values, attitudes, or beliefs, is natural, normal, of common sense, and may even be valid. The Andean myths contain sacred history and material testimony that reflect current events. – Publisher

160 pages with over 200 color photos
