  • Un acercamiento a la estilización y esquematismo de las figuras zoomorfas
           cerámicas de las Tierras Bajas del Paraná

    • Abstract: RESUMEN: Los procesos de estilización y esquematismo, que suponen una simplificación y una alteración de lo figurado, han sido escasamente estudiados en el arte prehispánico de las Tierras Bajas del Paraná. Este trabajo se propone profundizar en estos a través del análisis de una muestra de 34 apéndices figurativos de cerámica procedentes del sitio Las Tejas San Nicolás 1 (provincia de Entre Ríos, nor deste de Argentina). Se aportan criterios metodológicos que permiten discutir estos procedimientos en representaciones tridimensionales, lo que a su vez contribuye a identificar taxonómicamente los motivos zoomorfos simplificados. El análisis realizado muestra que las aves de presa constituyen la fauna más representada en el sitio, registrándose un énfasis en la unidad pico-cabeza, la cual actúa como sinécdoque del animal figurado. Los patrones de estilización y esquematización supondrían el uso de códigos visuales sobreentendidos, basados en convenciones socialmente establecidas y aceptadas.ABSTRACT: The processes of stylization and schematism, which suppose a simplification and alteration of the figured motifs, have been scarcely studied in the pre-Columbian art of the Lowlands of South America. This work aims to delve into these mechanisms through the analysis of a sample of 34 figurative ceramic append ages from the Las Tejas San Nicolás 1 site (Entre Ríos province, Northeast Argentina). Methodological criteria are provided that allow discussing these processes in three-dimensional representations, which in turn helps to taxonomically identify the simplified zoomorphic motifs. From the analysis carried out, it appears that birds of prey constitute the most represented animals in the site, registering an emphasis on the beak-head unit, which acts as a synecdoche of the figured animal. Stylization-schematization patterns would imply the use of understood visual codes, based on socially established and accepted conventions.
  • El cielo de las alturas: análisis arqueoastronómico y topográfico de
           las iglesias de Nuestra Señora de La Paz, Bolivia

    • Abstract: RESUMEN: La relación entre la cultura y la astronomía es un campo reciente de estudio que ha permitido entender la importancia y uso del cielo en distintos grupos sociales. En este trabajo abordamos aquellos vínculos que establecieron con el espacio celeste los pobladores locales del valle de La Paz (Bolivia), a partir de las wak'as (lugares sagrados) e iglesias coloniales, durante los siglos xvi y xviii. Logramos identificar posibles relaciones visuales entre los templos cristianos, las wak'as y los fenómenos celestes. Presentamos los resultados del análisis de la orientación de los accesos de altares de las iglesias y templos, considerando los espacios socialmente significativos para la población indígena. A la vez, mostramos que esta disposición responde a ciertos eventos de salida y puesta del Sol y la Luna en fechas especí ficas, que podrían coincidir con celebraciones y cultos indígenas, así como con el calendario de santos impuesto por los españoles.ABSTRACT: The relationship between culture and astronomy is an emerging field of study that has expanded our understanding of the importance and use of the sky among different social groups. In this paper we explore the links between these two realms that were established by the inhabitants of the La Paz valley (Bolivia). By examining local wak'as (sacredplaces) and colonial churches (16th to 18th centuries), we identified possible visual relationships between Christian churches and shrines, wak'as and celestial phenomena. This paper presents the results of our analysis of church and shrine altar placement in relation to socially significant spaces for the indigenous population. We furthermore show that their orientation is aligned with certain celestial events, including sunrise, sunset and moonset on specific dates, which may have coincided with indigenous celebrations and religious rites, as well as with the calendar of feast days imposed by the Spanish colonial rulers.
  • Entre pachamama y las estrellas… rituales pastoriles de fertilidad, arte
           rupestre y género

    • Abstract: RESUMEN: Basándose en el análisis formal y compositivo de la secuencia de arte rupestre del alero Real Grande 3 (rg3), se propone una recurrencia de uso del sitio entre los 5000-1500 años ap. Tomando en cuenta su emplazamiento en el sector de quebradas de altura (4000 msnm), su cercanía a una vertiente y curso permanente de agua, su relación con sitios próximos de distinta funcionalidad y la ausencia de ocupaciones en estratigrafía, la temática de las representaciones se interpreta a la luz de un conjunto de fuentes etnográficas andinas, relacionadas con prácticas pastoriles y ceremonias propiciatorias de fertilidad ganadera.ABSTRACT: Based on formal and compositional analyses of the rock art sequence of the Real Grande 3 (rg3) rock shelter, the authors propose that the site was used recurrently between ca. 5000 and1500 b . Taking into consideration its location in an area of highland ravines (4000 masl), its proximity to a freshwater spring and year-round watercourse, its relationship to nearby sites with different functions, and the absence of occupations in the stratigraphic record, the rock art representations are interpreted in light of a series of Andean ethnographic sources associated with pastoralist practices and ceremonies propitiating camelid fertility.
  • Marcas olvidadas: estudio de las representaciones rupestres históricas
           del sitio Los Fierros, Andacollo (norte semiárido de Chile)

    • Abstract: RESUMEN: Se presentan los resultados de una investigación desarrollada en el sitio arqueológico Los Fierros, ubicado en la cima del cerro homónimo, a 1200 msnm, en las cercanías de la localidad de Las Carditas, a unos 7 km del centro urbano de Andacollo (región de Coquimbo, Chile). El análisis formal de las di ferentes representaciones rupestres registradas en el sitio permitió identificar a los grupos humanos que las produjeron y el período cronológico-cultural durante el cual fueron realizadas. Como resultado de este análisis, relevamos una gran presencia de diseños de momentos históricos que, hasta la fecha, no habían sido documentados ni reconocidos en el norte semiárido chileno, los que corresponden principalmente a marcas de ganado.ABSTRACT: This paper presents the results of an investigation conducted on the rock art of the Los Fierros archaeo logical site. The site is situated at the summit of Cerro Los Fierros, at 1200 masl, near the town of Las Carditas, about 7 km from the urban center of Andacollo (Coquimbo region, Chile). Through the formal analysis of intrinsic attributes of the existing rock art, the authors were able to identify the chronological- cultural periods during which these expressions were produced, and which human groups created them. The analysis yielded a substantial quantity of designs produced in historical times, which until now had not been documented nor recognised, and which correspond mainly to motifs known as cattle brands.
  • Arte rupestre en los sitios Tres Lagunas 1 y Las Tres Marías (valle del
           Genoa, Chubut, Argentina): un aporte metodológico

    • Abstract: RESUMEN: Se presentan y comparan dos sitios con arte rupestre del centro oeste de la Patagonia, denominados Tres Lagunas 1 y Las Tres Marías, ubicados en las cercanías del valle del Genoa (departamento Tehuelches, provincia del Chubut, Argentina). Ambos contienen pinturas que corresponden a la tendencia abstracto geométrica compleja, también conocida como estilo de grecas. Para este trabajo propusimos examinar la variación intersubjetiva en la codificación y clasificación del arte rupestre, en vista de su importancia para la cuantificación de tipos de motivos. Se analizan las diferencias y semejanzas entre estos sitios, considerando los tipos de motivos presentes, y se las discute en un contexto regional. También se reconoce la importancia cuantitativa de los enmarcados y la presencia en el sitio Las Tres Marías de la técnica del estarcido con enmascarado.ABSTRACT: This work presents and compares two rock art sites, Tres Lagunas 1 and Las Tres Marías, near the Genoa Valley in West-Central Patagonia (Tehuelches Department, Chubut Province, Argentina). Both sites have paintings that correspond to the complex geometric abstract tendency, also known as the fretwork style. In this work, we proposed examining the intersubjective variation in the rock art's coding and classification, given its importance in the quantification of motif types. The differences and similarities between these sites are thus analyzed in terms of the types of motifs present and discussed in a regional context. The quantitative importance of the framed motifs and the presence of stencil-masking at the Las Tres Marías site is also discussed.
  • Metales prehispánicos en el centro de Argentina: acceso,
           manipulación y representaciones

    • Abstract: RESUMEN: Se exponen resultados de las primeras investigaciones arqueometalúrgicas en las sierras de Córdoba a partir del análisis compositivo de un conjunto de piezas metálicas y la distribución de minerales metalíferos, con el propósito de discutir su producción local y extrarregional. En este sentido, confluyen observaciones sobre las características de los contextos de los hallazgos y sus asociaciones con otros tipos de artefactos. Además, se integran evidencias, como la posible representación iconográfica de piezas metálicas en el arte rupestre y mobiliar, así como menciones en documentos de la época de la conquista española. La problemática en torno a una primera etapa de producción no local y otra etapa de formatización final local conecta estos objetos con el desarrollo de redes de larga distancia, que abarcaron a comunidades del centro de Argentina hacia fines del período prehispánico. Otros aspectos se relacionan con la construcción significativa de determinados lugares, paisajes y vínculos territoriales, de identidades colectivas y de roles personales, y también eventuales relaciones entre grupos originarios y forasteros.ABSTRACT: Results of the first archaeometallurgical research in sierras de Córdoba are presented, based on the compositional analysis of a set of metallic pieces and the distribution of metal ores, for the purpose of discussing local and extra-local production. The observed attributes of the contexts in which the pieces were found are consistent with their associations with other types of artifacts. Other evidence examined includes the possible iconographic representation of metal pieces in rock art and portable art, as well as documentary references from the time of the Spanish conquest. The possibility of an initial stage of extra-local production and a localfinishing stage links these objects with the emergence of long-distance networks that encompassed communities in central Argentina towards the end of the pre-Hispanic period. Other aspects analyzed include the construction of meaning in relation to certain places, landscapes, and territorial ties, collective identities, and personal roles, as well as possible relations between indigenous groups and outsiders.
  • Guanacos grabados en el interfluvio de los ríos Gallegos-Chico (Santa
           Cruz, Argentina): su distribución más austral en Patagonia

    • Abstract: RESUMEN: Se presenta un conjunto de grabados rupestres situados en el campo volcánico Pali Aike (provincia de Santa Cruz, Argentina) de los cuales no se tenían antecedentes, compuesto por representaciones de guanacos con distintas morfologías, ejecutados mediante la combinación de las técnicas de incisión y raspado. El contexto de estos diseños se relaciona con la producción de motivos rupestres previamente reconocidos en el área y asignados al estilo Río Chico, conformado principalmente por diseños abstractos geométricos, mayormente pintados, y algunos escasos grabados. La variabilidad observada en los motivos de guanacos grabados se explica a partir de la morfología del cuerpo, cuello y patas, la técnica de ejecución, la orientación, el plano de representación, las dimensiones, entre otras. Se discute el proceso de manufactura o norma constructiva del diseño y, finalmente, se proponen estimaciones cronológi cas a partir de comparaciones regionales, previendo que podrían corresponder a las manifestaciones rupestres más tempranas del sur de la Patagonia meridional (ca. 5000 ap).ABSTRACT: This paper characterizes the techniques and morphologies of a newly found set of rock engravings recorded in the Pali Aike volcanic field (Province of Santa Cruz, Argentina), composed by the representation of gua nacos with different morphologies. These designs are contextualized within the variety of rock art motifs previously recognized in the area and assigned to the Río Chico style, comprised mainly of painted geometric abstract designs. The variability in the design of engraved guanaco motifs is described by the morphology of the body, neck and leg, execution technique, orientation, representation plane, and dimensions, among others. A discussion follows on the manufacturing process or constructive design standards and, finally chronological estimates are proposed based on regional comparisons, foreseeing that this set of representa tions could correspond to the earliest rock art of southern Patagonia (ca. 5000 bp).
  • Los Señores del Dios Mariposa Pájaro: un nuevo grupo de la
           élite Teotihuacana

    • Abstract: ABSTRACT: This article first discusses who is mortal and who is immortal in Teotihuacan art, then identifies a type of high-ranking character whose iconography suggests they were part of a group that was under the protection of the Butterfly Bird God. These are called Lords of the Butterfly Bird God because that is how we see them in different contexts, in life bearing insignia of the elite, and in death in the form of mortuary bundles. These figures also appear with headdresses bearing images of the Butterfly Bird God's temple. The text then evaluates whether an exceptional set of ceramic figurines from Tlajinga district, Teotihuacan, represents an elite group led by the Lords with Butterfly headdress.RESUMEN: En este artículo, se discute en primer lugar quién es mortal y quién es inmortal en el arte teotihuacano, identificando en segundo lugar un tipo de personajes de alto rango, a quienes llamaremos Señores del Dios Mariposa Pájaro, cuya iconografía permite proponer que formaban un grupo que se encontraba bajo la protección de dicho dios. A estos personajes los vemos en diferentes contextos: durante su vida con insignias de la elite, y en su muerte en forma de bultos mortuorios; o portando en los tocados imágenes del templo del dios referido. Finalmente, se evalúa la posibilidad de que un conjunto excepcional de figurillas de cerámica procedente del distrito de Tlajinga, Teotihuacan, corresponda a la representación de un grupo de elite dirigido por los Señores con tocado de mariposa.
