Enfrentamiento3289/62
Blank

Wooden panel covered in plaster or gesso and painted. The tabla shows the Peruvian State forces confronting ‘Shining Path’ guerrilla insurgents in the high plains of Ayacucho. The image shows men in Sinchi uniform as well as people in local traditional dress. A low flying helicopter painted with state camouflage is firing on everyone. The image is of destruction and bloody death. However, it also contains images of the local landscape that show continuity in painting style from the house beams (3289/60-61); a dog steals a piece of meat from the fire, chickens roam the hillside. This is the culmination of the armed conflict and shows the confusion involved in the identities of attackers and victims.
