The artists of Tigua are renowned for their colorful paintings depicting village life high in the mountains of rural Ecuador. Living much as they have lived for centuries, families herd sheep and llamas and cultivate a variety of potatoes and grains in small communities perched on the windswept slopes of the Andes mountains. Their language is Quichua, the language of the Inca. Though they have acquired many modern ways, their customs, and indeed their paintings, still reflect this ancient heritage.
