Resumen

SEPULVEDA R., Marcela A.; ROMERO GUEVARA, Álvaro L.  y  BRIONES, Luis. CARAVANS, ROCK ART AND RITUALISM IN THE QUEBRADA SUCA (NORTHERN CHILE). Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2005, vol.37, n.2, pp.225-243. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562005000200008.

This work analyses the strong and recognized relationship between rock art and traffic routes witin the Atacama Desert. The model of circuit mobility is analyzed and in addition Andean ritualism is considered. We describe the architectural, ceramic and rock art evidence from two adjacent sites in the interior of the Quebrada Suca, in the Valley of Camarones (Northern Chile). The sites Suca 7 and Suca 13 were selected for their significance within the landscape and contextual associations. The two sites present different logistical functions within the model of circuit mobility, for distinctive traffic, one being interregional and the other local and circumscribed to the gorge and adjacent valleys. Furthermore, the analysis of rock art permits observations about spatial appropriation, ritualism, and economic and ideological interactions among different late pre-Hispanic populations (A.D. 1,000 to 1,350) within the desert

Palabras clave : Rock-art; circuit mobility; ritualism; Late Intermediate Period; Atacama Desert.
