BASILE, Mara y RATTO, Norma. COLORS AND TRACES: A METHODOLOGICAL APPROACH FOR ANALYZING THE PLASTIC ART REPRESENTATIONS OF FIAMBALÁ REGION (TINOGASTA, CATAMARCA, ARGENTINA). Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2011, vol.16, n.2, pp. 75-88. ISSN 0718-6894. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68942011000200006.
We introduce a methodological approach that facilitates the handling of large samples of representations found on different supports-ceramic vessels and boulders. Reliable and unambiguous analytical categories are constructed for the visual resources (toolbox and modes of resolution) used to produce the representations, in order to access the interrelation of gestures, elements and techniques used to resolve the images found on each support. Theproposedprocedure is demonstrated through an analysis of a sample of 772 representationsfrom the Regional Development Period or Late Intermediate Period (ca. 1200-1400 AD) found on ceramic vessels and boulders in Fiambalá region.
