A Reflection on Norman Daly’s “Civilization of Llhuros”

“Daly’s attention to detail and consistency is perhaps what comes across most powerfully in his work. It allows for the exhibition to be both ironic and appreciative of its dealings with archaeological practise. His method of working and display is consistent with typical anthropological display. Daly also invented a rich world of scholars, archaeologists, translators, researchers, institutions, curators and publications which all serve to advance the penetration of Llhuros into the contemporary world.” – Jonathan Goschen, October 2, 2019
