CHAPARRO AMAYA, Adolfo. Teo-iconology of sacrificial power among the Moche. Aisthesis [online]. 2011, n.50, pp. 72-91. ISSN 0718-7181.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-71812011000200004.

Based on the iconographic evidences of predation and their narrative equivalents, present in different aspects of the Mochica culture, this essay seeks to establish (i) a methodology for approaching the cannibal sacrifice taking into account different forms of iconic ‹writing›; and (ii) establish a socio-cosmic explanation to sacrificial politics. By articulating these scriptural and political aspects, the paper will provide a new perspective to the rich discussion on the relationship between cannibalism and power that has been proposed by archaeologists, anthropologists and studies on the semiotic of Prehispanic cultures.

Palavras-chave : writing; iconology; sacrificial power; cannibalism; Mochica culture.
