Tilsa Tsuchiya (1929-1984) was an extraordinary Japanese-Peruvian artist. Her pictorial project was to create a personal iconography associated to a mythical dimension with no personal or historical references. This project had an outstanding moment in a set of paintings known as “the myths”: Tristán e Isolda (1974-1975), Mito de los sueños (1974), Mito del fruto (1975), Mito del árbol (1976), Mito de la mujer y el vuelo (1976), Mito de la montaña (el auki) (1976), Mito de la laguna (1975), Mito del pájaro y las piedras (1975), Mito del guerrero rojo (1976), Mito de la luna madre (1976).
