Abstract

GLUZMAN, Geraldine. TECHNICAL AND STYLISTIC STUDIES OF METALLIC DISKS OF THE HISPANIC-INDIGENOUS PERIOD FROM PUKARÁ DE TILCARA (JUJUY, ARGENTINA). Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.1, pp.63-80. ISSN 0718-6894.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68942010000100005.

We present technical and stylistic analyses of metallic disks from Tilcara (province of Jujuy) and assigned to the time of first contact with the Spanish (ca. 1535-1650). We evaluate changes and continuities of style and to a lesser extent the disc manufacturing techniques from the late pre-Hispanic period to the time of contact, taking into consideration the assimilation or negotiation of certain European values and the upholding of local cultural decisions. The Spanish conquest was a lengthy process characterized by diverse forms of alliance, confrontation and contact between the European and native populations that brought the latter into a new social framework that altered the production, circulation and consumption of different types of goods and images.

Keywords : metallic disks; technical analysis; stylistic studies; Tilcara; Spanish-indigenous contact.
