Resumen

TRONCOSO M., Andrés. TOWARD A SEMIOTIC OF ROCK ART from THE UPPER BASIN OF THE ACONCAGUA RIVER, CENTRAL CHILE. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2005, vol.37, n.1, pp.21-35. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562005000100003.

In this article the material world of prehispanic central Chile is conceptualized as a system of specialized semiotics and a product of a particular thought process. Using a semiotic characterization of a rock art from the upper basic of the Aconcagua River has allowed the characterization of two rock art styles. These styles are compared with other representational systems from the same area in order to characterize a general semiotic principle for the production of the visual systems such as pottery and architecture. The results allow for a discussion of chronological associations of local rock art, with ties to the Late Intermediate Period and Late Horizon

Palabras clave : rock art; systems of visual representation; semiotic; upper basin of Aconcagua river; Late Intermediate Period; Late Horizon.
