Resumen

KORPISAARI, Antti; SAGARNAGA, Jédu; VILLANUEVA, Juan  y  PATINO, Tania. TIWANAKU DEPOSITS OF OFFERINGS ON THE ISLAND OF PARITI, LAKE TITICACA, BOLIVIA. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2012, vol.44, n.2, pp.247-267. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562012000200004.

Since 1998, a team of Finnish and Bolivian archaeologists have been excavating in the Canton of Cascachi (Los Andes Province, Department of La Paz). In this article we discuss the results of our investigations on the Island of Pariti in 2004-2006. We concentrate on describing and analyzing the cultural material recovered in two deep pits filled with intentionally smashed Tiwanaku pottery, dating from the second half of the tenth century A.D. These pits -the so-called features 1 and 2- contained sherds belonging to at least 435 vessels, the majority of which we were able to reconstruct more or less completely. The resulting collection includes 56 kerus, 67 ch’alladores, 43 tazones, 82 escudillas, 26 bottles, 24 pedestal bowls, 7 portrait vessels, 7 tinajas, and 6 sahumadores, that is, typical Tiwanaku-period forms. However, there are also several vessels whose forms were little known or even virtually unknown prior to our discoveries, such as the 45 so-called kidney-shaped bowls. The Pariti collection is one of the most important assemblages of late Tiwanaku ceramics in the South Central Andes and offers new data to better understand the Tiwanaku phenomenon.
