BRAY, Tamara L.. INPERIAL INKA POTTERY: A COMPARISON OF STATE CERAMICS FROM THE CUZCO HEARTHLAND AND THE PROVINCES. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2004, vol.36, n.2, pp. 365-374. ISSN 0717-7356. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562004000200010.
An on-going study of complete Inka vessels found in museum collections suggests that the imperial assemblage is not as homogeneous or as evenly distributed throughout the empire as commonly thought. In this paper I compare frequencies, sizes, and stylistic variants of imperial Inka pottery from the Cuzco heartland region to materials found in the provincial districts of the empire. The significance of the differences and similarities noted between core and provincial assemblages are explored within the context of imperial state politics
