Indigenous Art in Paraguay

By Linda Tancs

Seventeen indigenous ethnic groups call Paraguay home, resulting in an array of indigenous art.  Basketwork and feathered ornaments predominate, hallmarks of the Guaraní peoples.  Feathered cloaks are particularly striking, once reserved exclusively for shamans.  Other handiworks find expression in ceramics and wood carvings.  Three museums proudly showcase the indigenous art form:  Andrés  Barbero Ethnographic Museum, the Guido Boggiani Museum, and the Museum of Indigenous Art.
