Photographer's Note

The "Museo Regional de Antropología e Historia" in La Paz focuses on the pre-Columbian inhabitants of the area. There were never very many of them -- the area is mostly brutal desert -- and they did not survive contact with the Europeans, so very little is known about them. They left, however, a large number of cave paintings throughout the peninsula. This massive cut-steel artwork that stands outside the Museo in La Paz echoes some of the motifs and figures from those cave paintings. I regret that I have not (yet!) been able to find the name of the piece or the artist who made it.
