Resumen

TRONCOSO, Andrés; CRIADO-BOAD, Felipe  y  SANTOS-ESTEVEZ, Manuel. ROCK ART AND SPATIAL CODES: A CASE OF STUDY IN CENTRAL CHILE. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2011, vol.43, n.2, pp.161-176. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562011000200001.

Using Landscape Archaeology as a theoretical and methodological framework, we explore the spatial organization of a rock art site in Central Chile in search of the structures that order the distribution of engravings in the site. We recognize the presence of a group of spatial codes, which define the placement of the carved blocks through a system that combines duality, tripartition, and quadripartition. By identifying this organization system, we propose that these codes materialize in space some structural principles of Andean thought. We discuss the implications of that idea for the archaeology and prehistory of Central Chile.

Palabras clave : Rock art; spatial structures; Andean thought; Central Chile.
