Estimado colega,

Tengo el placer de informarle que mi último trabajo sobre el Arte Rupestre Andino está disponible ahora. El título del libro es: ‘Rumimantam Llaqllasaq Wirpuykita’, y el subtítulo del libro es ‘The ‘Cycle of Life’ in the Rock Art of the Desert Andes’. El libro exclusivamente trata las imagenes en el Arte Rupestre Andino (Desert Andes = el Perú desértico y el norte de Chile) que expresan figuras y escenas relacionado con la vida y la muerte. El índice del libro (abajo) sera más aclarando.

El libro (10 x 8 inches / 25 x 20 cm) ha sido escrito en la lengua inglesa, pero debido a las numerosas ilustraciones también es de uso fácil para quienes que hablan español. El libro tiene 168 páginas. El texto ha sido imprimido en Georgia - 8 y 9 puntos. El texto tiene aproximadamente 60.000 palabras. El libro ha sido espléndidamente decorado con 326 ilustraciones (muchas fotos en color y numerosos dibujos).

Todos los detalles sobre el libro, el precio y la manera de adquirir una copia puede obtenerse en la siguiente página web donde también pueden mirar una selección de páginas.

Espero que usted estará interesado en mi trabajo

Saludos cordiales

Maarten van Hoek

Dear Colleague,

I have pleasure to inform you that my latest work about Andean Rock Art is now available. The title of the book is: ‘‘Rumimantam Llaqllasaq Wirpuykita’, and the subtitle is ‘The ‘Cycle of Life’ in the Rock Art of the Desert Andes’. The book exclusively describes and discusses rock art images from the Desert Andes (the deserts of western Peru and northern Chile) which are associated with life and death (sex and gender related imagery). The index below reveals more.

The book (10 x 8 inches / 25 x 20 cm) has been written in the English language, but because of the numerous illustrations is also easy to use for Spanish speaking people. The book has 168 pages. The text has mainly been printed in Georgia - 9 points. The text has about 60.000 words. The book has been lavishly decorated with 326 illustrations (many colour photos and numerous drawings).

Full details about the book, the price and how-to-purchase a copy may be obtained at the following web page where also a selection of pages may be viewed.

I hope you will be interested in my work

Kind regards

Maarten van Hoek
