Resumen

LIZARRAGA IBANEZ, Manuel A. THE ANDEAN COLONIAL ELITE AND THE MATERIALIZATION OF PERSONAL MEMORIES IN THE "TRANSITIONAL QUEROS" (16TH CENTURY WOODEN CUPS). Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.1, pp.37-53. ISSN 0718-6894.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68942009000100003.

The quero vessels were a cultural support system that reacted rapidly to the visual incentives of 16th Century European paintings. Thus, these pieces began to display iconographic changes almost immediately after the Spanish arrival in “the Indies.” In this regard, the Cusco-made Inka quero vessels-wooden cups with abstract geometric designs that themselves sustained the Inka memory-underwent a decorative transformation, giving way to the so-called “transitional queros.” These cups displayed visual signifiers that were more figurative and polychromatic than their predecessors. As in the Inka period, these transitional quero vessels continued to be associated with the Cusco elite, and therefore carried not a single collective memory of Andean colonial times, but distinct personal memories in competition with one another, which corresponded to each of the noble lineages of the native Cusqueños. This article attempts to demonstrate that the iconographic changes detected in the transitional quero vessels responded to the Cusco nobles’ need to tell and retell their respective histories, their “rites of the past.”

Palabras clave : Andean colonial memory; transitional quero vessels; panacas; colonial period (16th-18th centuries).
