CASES C., Bárbara  y  ROJAS Z., Ana María. UN PLANTEAMIENTO EXPERIMENTAL DE REPLICACIÓN: REGISTRO Y CONSERVACIÓN DE UNA MOMIA CHNCHORRO TARDÍA. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2001, vol.33, n.1, pp.107-111. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562001000100019.

In 1991, the Archaeological Museum of Santiago prepared an exhibition in order to present the main milestones in the prehistory of the present Chilean territory. In this context, one of the topics was mummification, both natural and artificial. To illustrate this, an infant mummy from one of the latest phases of the Chinchorro Complex was exhibited in Europe. In its different mountings and relocations, this mummy suffered losses and damage to its clay mask, skull, and extremities, as well as to the matting and textiles that formed part of its bundle. Based upon these facts, and the need to continue to display the same mummy, the decision was made to create a replica in order to avoid further damage and the ethical problems concerning the display of human remains. Upon realizing our goal, we considered the replica to be a decision that successfully incorporated both preventive conservation and another main function of museums, exhibition and education

Palabras clave : Museology; mummy replica; Chinchorro.
