Thanks for sharing the detail on your trip and photo of the warehouse with dr Cabrera.
Schuster also described use of continuous lines in other tribal art and discussed the ancestrial symbolism. He showed each line as heritage, each point where the lines cross as a generation, and then showed the entire figure as a clan symbol. Where they part of an ancestral shrine?
Did The Ica stones catalog include tablets? Did these relics appear to have similar manufacturing styles?
