Imago Typhonis is a tale about foundation myths who assumes the otherness departing from our owns referents, and how the myths incise in the perception of the environment. A poem from Fernando de Valverde about the Sanctuary of Copacabana, in Bolivia, interpret the myths of the Andes using and comparison with the ancient Greek Myths. Using the own referents for explaining the otherness we can ask ourselves if we are maybe trying to talk about us using the strange. This effort is condemned to the failure because both Universes are irreconcilables. Imago Typhonis is a reflection about the impossibility to assume the otherness as our own, and of the different strategies of appropriation between the different imaginaries.
