In 1934, Joaquín Torres-García returned to his native Uruguay with the objective of developing his theory of Constructive Universalism into a major art movement. He Americanized his project by using local references and pre-Columbian symbols in his work. At top, Inti, the Inca sun god, shines over all realms of existence, while at bottom, a figure stands next to a stepped building. These archetypes symbolize the indigenous peoples of the Andean region and their great cultural and architectural contributions to human history.
