LIZARRAGA IBANEZ, Manuel A. NOT TO FORGET": HUACAS DISGUISED: THE EUROPEAN APPEARANCE OF THE ANDEAN DIVINITIES INTO THE COLONIAL POLYCHROME WOODEN QUERO VESSELS (16TH-18TH CENTURYA.D). Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.49, pp.341-355. ISSN 0719-2681. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812016000100031.
Abstract: The colonialpolychrome wooden quero vessels (called llimpisccaqueros) were a type of materiality that support ceremonial visual discourses of Andean contemporary elites (their main transmitters). Thus following the Spanish "visual conquest", thispre-Hispanic memory support system reacted quickly to visual impulses of European Cinquecento image (topintasca) paintings and hermeneutic. Due to local use of European stamps, engravings and illustrated books; the colonial polychrome wooden quero vessels captured some Classic European fabulous images of Renaissance reproduction for reconfiguring, with them, its Andean colonial imaginary. In this way we have "vasos de palo", as part of their new symbolic universe, that present Andean colonial signifiers of European appearance which are not formally ft to transatlantic icon vero but, rather, correspond to real local variations -"fictions" - that although differ from their European models saved, in turn, a clear Greco-Roman and Renaissance heritage. Inside this aesthetic scenery, the artisans of their "vasos de palo" used certain images of The Physiologist-Medieval Bestiary (sirens and centaurs for example) for drawing fabulous signifiers that could surround, allegorically, the symbolic vacuum left by the annihilation of the local huacas of the Colonial Andean elites, during the Spanish conquest.
