Resumen

Norah Borges was arrested and imprisoned in 1948 for her participation in a demonstration against the Argentinian President, Juan Perón. In critical material relating to Jorge Luis Borges, this incident is often cited as one which crystallized his resentment of Perón, but no one has yet studied the effect it had on Norah or on her work. This article explores Norah Borges’s political ideology through a variety of sources. It notes the ways in which Norah deflects attention from her arrest in interviews and uses Norah’s personal correspondence with her cousin Esther Haedo de Amorim to reconsider this public reticence. It will analyse two of Norah’s later works in detail to highlight her ability to integrate politicized events into the ‘mundo más pequeño y perfecto’, which she made, arguably, both an aesthetic and ethical creed.

Resumen

This article explores a find of ivories excavated in the first decade of the current century from a shipwreck in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of the Mariana Islands, almost 1500 miles from the Philippines, along the route the Manila galleons took on their way to Mexico. In 1601 one of those galleons, the Santa Margarita, sank, along with its rich cargo of goods from the Philippines. The cargo included ivory sculptures, over 300 of which have now been excavated. They consist of fragments of sculptures, and occasionally virtually complete small-scale works, mostly representing Christian subjects, carved by Chinese and Filipino sculptors in the Philippines. This is the first time a specific group of such ivories known to have come from a dated shipwreck has been examined and published. The date of the shipwreck suggests that we should revise the dates of similar pieces, formerly thought to have been carved later on in the seventeenth century, to an earlier date.
