Resumen

HORTA TRICALLOTIS, Helena. EL ESTILO CIRCUMPUNEÑO EN EL ARTE DE LA PARAFERNALIA ALUCINÓGENA PREHISPÁNICA (ATACAMA Y NOROESTE ARGENTINO). Estud. atacam. [online]. 2012, n.43, pp.5-34. ISSN 0718-1043.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-10432012000100002.

This work is based on a stylistic and contextual analysis of hallucinogenic paraphernalia from funerary contexts in the circum-Puna area. By considering a broad ranging archaeological sample and a thorough literature review, a circum-Puna style is defined that has a macro-regional character due to its wide field of dispersion (in Chile: Atacama coast, Loa River basin, and Salar de Atacama; in northwestern Argentina: Quebrada de Humahuaca and the Puna of Jujuy). This style is distinct from that of Tiawanaku both in its formal elements as well as its temporal placement. Here I define those features which classify this circum-Puna pattern as a separate style. These characteristics are those that possess a deep rooted relationship with the circum-Puna, although there is evidence of altiplano-inspired concepts such as the decapitation of individuals who appear to be sacrificed in the framework of a shamanic ritual.

Palabras clave : Snuffing Complex; Circum-Puna area; Atacama Desert; Prehispanic Iconography; Shamanic ritual; human sacrifice.
