Statuary carved by Guarani Indians sits on display in a museum at San Ignacio Guazu, Paraguay, the site of the oldest of scores of Jesuit missions in the area where Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil meet. The missions were built in the 17th century and abandoned when the Jesuits were expelled in the 18th century. Ruins of some of these missions still haunt hilltops in the region.
