Horizontes iconogrÁficos en venezuela: Diferencias regionales e histÓricas

Translated title of the contribution: Iconographic horizons in venezuela: Regional and historic differences

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article explores the iconographic traditions of the Pre-Hispanic Period in the territory of what is now Venezuela. While archaeological and ethnographic votive statuettes are abundant in Northern Venezuela, south of the Orinoco River hardly any trace of those objects has been found. Chronicles from the Colonial and Republican periods have already documented that difference, highlighting the presence of idolatrous practices in the north and an absence of idolatry in the south. Given this scenario, in this article we attempt to identify the presence of iconographic horizons or visual ontologies that are independent\ of ceramic styles or linguistic families.
