Los códigos del barroco en la arquitectura novohispana de Sinaloa

Front Cover
Architect Valenzuela Escalante presents an architectonic and iconographic study of the singular baroque churches of the northern state of Sinaloa and the local aesthetic interpretation of its original codes. The book examines in detail the late 18th century and early 19th century architecture and decorative elements expressed in the local Jesuits churches: the mermaid-birds carved in the Temple of La Concordia; the enigmatic personages, two-headed eagles and Solomonic columns of the Church of El Rosario; the rock carved altar of the Capirato and many other artistic manifestations that, as the author concludes are part of an invaluable cultural patrimony that has been the subject of persistent plundering and neglected by state officials.
