Miniature worlds and regeneration of life
Variations of scale in the Andes and Mesoamerica
_ Friday 04/09/15_
On the basis of data from the Andes and Mesoamerica, this study day explores the impact of a reduction in scale on the ritual efficiency of these objects. A number of studies of material culture are presented, comparing archaeological and anthropological knowledge in order to provide an interdisciplinary perspective on the concepts of life and the living amongst the Amerindian peoples.
Organized by Olivia Angé, Andrew Hamilton and Perig Pitrou in collaboration with the Pépinière Interdisciplinaire CNRS-PSL “Domestication et fabrication du vivant”.
On the basis of a corpus of contextualised items from the territory of the Tawantinsuyu Inca and now belonging to a number of different collections, the aim of this encounter is to lead to advances in knowledge regarding the production of gold and silverwork during the period of the Inca empire (1450-1532 A.D.)
Organized by Paz Núñez-Regueiro, head of the Americas collections at the musée du quai Branly, and Maria Filomena Guerra, director of research at CNRS, UMR 8096 ArchAm.
In conjunction with:
L’Inca et le Conquistador
June 23 → September 20, 2015
“The Inca and the conquistador” presents the conquest of Peru through the epic story of two men: Atahualpa, the Inca, and Francisco Pizarro, the conquistador. The meeting of these two principal players illustrates the clash of two radically different worlds that were to undergo profound political, economic, cultural and religious change.
