AZOCAR, Alonso et al. Iconic and Iconographic Analysis of a Mapuche Dental Procedure Photographed by Gustavo Milet. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.1, pp.97-100. ISSN 0718-381X.

The vital relationship of the Mapuche with the land, not only covers the area of material subsistence, but also involves a spiritual expression. The present study gives a subtle look at the complex medical/religious systems of the Mapuche people, their concepts of health, habits and actions to solve their daily medical-dental needs, which are revealed through a complete Iconic and iconographic analysis of a photograph by Gustavo Milet.
