Resumen

CRUZ, Pablo. Contending images: Reflections on indigenous visual productions in the colonial mining context. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.1, pp.95-113. ISSN 0718-6894.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68942016000100007.

This work focuses on a series of visual productions linked to contingents of indigenous laborers that were sent to work in major mining centers in the Southern Andes during the early part of the colonial period. These visual productions -which are characterized by their visual discretion and level of abstraction, in marked contrast to the figurative representations and styles of "Andean colonial art"- reflect both the coercion and the control of images that the colonial regime and the Church exercised upon these poulations, as well as the latters recognition and adoption of Christianity and its symbols, above all the cross. The information used in this article comes from a series of studies conducted since 1995 at different colonial mining and metallurgical sites in Potosí Department and in the regions of Chuquisaca, Oruro and Pacajes, in Bolivia.

Palabras clave : "common" indigenous peoples; mining; metallurgy; Colonial times; Andes; Bolivia.
