MONTT S, Indira. Faldellines del Período Formativo en el Norte Grande: Un ensayo acerca de la historia de su construcción visual. Estud. atacam. [online]. 2002, n.23, pp. 7-22. ISSN 0718-1043. doi: 10.4067/S0718-10432002002300002.
On the basis of previous research, this paper characterizes the attire worn by the anthropomorphic paintings located in the high basin sites of the river Salado (the main tributary of the Loa), the fringed pubiccovering being the only piece of clothing that is represented. Learning on this systematization and its clear chronological correlates, we considered figures from sites in Pisagua, the gorges of Aroma and Guatacondo and San Pedro de Atacama that also have fringed pubic coverings. This exercise is an approximation to certain formal solutions in the field of flat representations from an iconological perspective based on archaeological evidence and its temporal tendencies, in order to deepen our understanding of the social and cultural aspects evidenced by the representations exhibiting this garment.
