Following the Spanish conquest of the Inka empire in 1532,the native people were obliged to recognize the king of Spain as their ruler and to accept the teachings of the Christian faith. In this illuminating study, author Carol Damina reveals how the artists of post-conquest Cuzco combined European styles of painting and iconography with anciet Peruvian traditions to forge an original Andean Colonial goddess-the Virgin of the Andes.
By the early years of the 17th century,the native artists of Cuzco established their own school, the first indigenous organization of artists in the New World. While most studies of the school of Cuzco are written from the European perspective, Prof. Damian uses records and contracts located in Peruvian archives to investigate the meanings of the Virgin of the Andes to the native people of Cuzco.
The rich spendor of Cuzco paintings, characterized by lavish gold ornamentation and elegantly painted jewels and feathers, is bautifully illustrated on over 40 color plates.

Carol Damian, an associate professor of art history and Chairperson of the Visual Arts department at Florida International University, is a noted authority on colonial and contemporary Latin American art.Review:
Superbly illustrated with color plates featuring images of the Virgin Mary in her many apparitions,this volume is an invaluable source for art historians as well as those interested in material culture and religion in Peru. Art historian Carol Damian explores how indigenous artisans of post-conquest Peru combined European styles of painting and iconography with pre-Columbian art,lore,and tradition to create the colonial Virgin of the Andes. To that end,Damian writes,"Christian art by Cuzco natives,however sincere it may have appeared,was something quite different from the religious art of the Conquerors. Just as the Spanish campaigns to destroy the idols of the Andean people revealed ritual objects hidden beneath the gown of statues of the Virgin Mary,this book will reveal that the artist rendered the Virgin Mary as a disquise for Pachamamma,the earth Mother of the Andean people". -- Colonial Latin American Historical Review
