PEREZ, Alberto E  and  SALABERRY, Gonzalo P. The Rock Paintings of Paredón Bello (Cordón Chapelco), San Martín de los Andes, Neuquén, Argentina. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2014, vol.19, n.2, pp.77-93. ISSN 0718-6894.

This paper offers a detailed characterization of the rock art of the Paredón Bello site, originally described in 1956 by Juan Schobinger. While the characterization allows us to identify technical and stylistic affinities with other places in the middle reaches of the Neuquén river, other previously characterized sites in the Vega Maipu zone and Lacar lake, both in the Valdivia river basin, have in some cases been used as "typical sites" in defining a singular stylistic modality called the "grecas" style. We associate this style with motifs present on pottery from the Late Ceramic period of south central Chile, or the Red on White Bicolor Tradition.

Keywords : rock paintings; Paredón Bello; San Martín de los Andes; Argentine Patagonia.
