Resumen

GLUZMAN, Geraldine. HUMAN REPRESENTATION AND GENDER IN METALLIC OBJECTS FROM NORTHWEST ARGENTINA. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.2, pp. 89-106. ISSN 0718-6894.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68942010000200006.

In this work we analyze a set of late pre-Hispanic bronze objects from the Northwest of Argentina (NOA) from a gender studies lens. The representation of femalefigures in diverse objects has rarely been studied; most of the time these objects are merely described Mthcmt investigating their relationship to the medium and with other representations. Beginning with a reflection on the representation of women in metal objects, we explore the social implications of the differential presence of male and female images during the late pre-Hispanic period in NOA and propose that these reflect differentiated spheres of gender that are nonetheless interdependent and complementary.

Palabras llave : gender archaeology; metals; Northwestern Argentina; late pre-Hispanic period.
