FUENZALIDA, Nicole. Archaeological style as colonial trace: References in the late prehistoric pottery from central Chile. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2021, vol.26, n.1, pp.57-72. ISSN 0718-6894.

This paper discusses perspectives on the pottery style in the con text of the inka expansion in central Chile (1400-1536AD) and reflects on the “lenses” that operate in a colonial-civilizatory way. The style and the disintegration of its “cultural references” are regarded as dynamic, in relation to the artisan-artistic agency and the socio-political contexts. Stylistic categories with local, Cuzco, and Diaguita references are proposed. It is suggested that, although the communities incorporated new technological standards and design patterns, there are principles of exclusion regarding their traditional lifestyles as part of the political practice of the state and of the efforts to persist and to re-signify the new order.
