Stunning…By incorporating a wide variety of Wari arts from the figural to the abstract, and across media, the catalogue presents Wari art as a totality. The lavish illustrations, most of which are in full color, provide a visual database from which trends emerge, an internal logic coalesces, and the Wari become more understandable. Despite the lack of monumental forms, Wari artwork does not lack sophistication, and its influence ran deep.
