Resumen

CERECEDA, Verónica. Of transitions and pachacutis?: A small pattern in figurines of high altitude ceremonies. Bol. Mus. Chil. Arte Precolomb. [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.1, pp.271-314. ISSN 0718-6894.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-68942020000100271.

In this paper, we explore the complex subject of Capacocha ceremonies held in some mountain tops of the Andes during Incan times, where human sacrifices, especially of girls and boys of great beauty and deemed perfect, were done. We have focused on one aspect of these sacred rituals, namely, the pattern on the miniature woven feminine garments dressing the figurines that are part of the mortuary offerings. These patterns stand out not only because of their iconic nature, not always present in the Cusco art, but also because of their obsessive repetition in these offerings made in the Andean peaks.

Palabras clave : High-rise burial ground; Figurine; Capacocha; Andes; Textiles.
