Gavino Aguirre depicts Moche ancestors in deep, rich color as they return in enigmatic triumph. Mysterious creatures soar through the night sky above an ancient ruler and his concubine. Carrying trophies of war – the heads of dead warriors and animals – they lead a procession of prisoners. "This painting is a synthesis of the past with features from the present," the artist explains.
Titled "Trofeos de batalla" in Spanish.
