BERLEKAMP, Friederike. ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION OF COLONIAL FEATHER ART FROM SOUTH AMERICA: POSIBILITIES AND PROSPECTS OF THE HISTORICAL VISUAL CULTURE IN AN INTERCULTURAL CONTEXT. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.49, pp.113-122. ISSN 0719-2681. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812016000100013.
Only few feather mosaics from the colonial time from South America are known. In the collections of the Museo de América in Madrid and the Museo Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá exists a total of 11 pieces which are located in Peru and in the Andean zone respectively and dated in the 17th/18th century. None of these objects is documented, but notwithstanding this they can serve as graphic historical sources. Material, technical and iconographic analyses, comparisons with other feather objects and works of art, and the reading of contemporary written sources enable their contextualizations in Jesuits'missions. By the combination of the problems of the Historical Visual Culture with those of the research of cultural transfer it is possible to explain the context of their creation in detail: encounters between persons with different cultural backgrounds in the 17th/18th century in South America.
