Miniature Worlds and Regeneration of Life

Variations of Scale in the Andes and Mesoamerica.

This day provides an opportunity for the international researchers gathered for the occasion to explore the impact of scale reduction on the effectiveness of ritual objects using data from the Andes and Mesoamerica.

The presentations centre on archaeological and anthropological knowledge in order to examine the concepts of life and living beings among Amerindian peoples from an interdisciplinary perspective.


Olivia Angé (Wageningen University), Andrew Hamilton (Princeton University), Perig Pitrou (CNRS – LAS) and the Department of Research and Education at the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac, with the support of the CNRS-PSL Incubator for interdisciplinary research projects: "Domestication and production of the living being"
