GALLARDO PORRAS, Viviana. ETHNOGRAPHIC IMAGES: REPRESENTATION AND SPEECH ON "THE INDIAN" IN CHILE IN THE WORK OF FRAY DIEGO DE OCAÑA. Diálogo Andino [online]. 2016, n.50, pp.141-153. ISSN 0719-2681. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812016000200011.
This article analyses the Chilean part of the journey of Fray Diego de Ocaña. His account brings together the characteristics of a travel journal as well as the historical precisions of a chronicle. The intention of recalling events is combined with sketches and paintings, as a testimony of what has been seen and experienced. The article analyses the links between text and images and the construction of otherness in the textual and iconographic representations of the Indian. It affirms that Ocaña's text deals with representations that are superimposed upon an epic-like tale in constant tension: recognizing indigenous strength and motivation, and knowing other indigenous realities that are present in the territorial space. The conclusion is that there is a concordance between text and image that complements and reinforces the central idea of the work based on a "land at war".
