Summary
The current practice of the cult of Maria Lionza is one of the most important and yet unexplored religious practices in Venezuela. Based on long-term fieldwork, this book explores the role of images and visual culture within the cult. By adopting a relational approach, it shows how the innumerable images of this goddess -represented as an Indian, white or mixed-race woman- move constantly from objects to bodies, from bodies to dreams, and from the religion domain to the art world. In short, this book is a fascinating essay that sheds light on the role of visual creativity in contemporary religious manifestations
