Natureza e civiliza??o: os painéis decorativos do Sal?o Nobre do Teatro Amazonas
Daou, Ana Maria Lima;
História, Ciências, Saúde-Manguinhos , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-59702007000500003
Abstract: the decorative panels in the foyer of the teatro amazonas, inaugurated in 1896, stand out from the rest of the building's ornamental iconography. the rubber trade brought great wealth to the capitals of pará and amazonas and as these cities gained national and international fame, their urban fabric and forms of sociability underwent significant changes. the article looks for parallels between the landscape representations of amazonian nature adorning the building's foyer, the construction of the modern city, and social uses of the teatro amazonas, symbol of the era and emblem of the newly rich elite, who were then taking their place on the regional and national stages. the teatro amazonas formed the center of the era's social life and its foyer played host to veritable rituals of 'civilization', in which brazilian and foreign guests enjoyed the fine setting of amazon's nature as represented in the decorative wall panels.

Abstract: in this paper we explore the iconography of tiwanaku and its role to integrate the frontiers zones of south central andean area like the azapa valley and san pedro de atacama oasis in northern chile. we think that in the tiwanaku expansive process the sanctions to help central hierarchy and the strategies employed to integrate peripherical zones had an ideological and political nature. the material expression of this was the iconography of lithic sculpture of site in titicaca altiplano that it was displayed on portable objects, creating the interaction and influence sphere of tiwanaku. based on this idea we studied several archaeological collections from southern perú, central and south bolivia and northern chile. particularly, we focus on textile and pottery study of azapa valley and san pedro de atacama oasis, to determine the center periphery integration grade -territorial or hegemonic- during the middle period

Abstract: this paper focuses on sustantial differences in the use of headdresses among prehispanic population in the valley of azapa and coast of arica observed during the late intermediate period (1000 - 1470 ad) excavated at the playa miller-3 cemetery, in the coast, 233 graves with their funerary contexts contain 32 feather diadems. the analysis both of the context and the geographical distribution of such diadems allows us to associate this type of headdress with a specific group of fishermen. the revision of the archaeological material from the other coastal and valley sites in the archaeological museum of san miguel de azapa, has demonstrated, that such headdress survived until the beginning of the late period showing, therefore, a particular cultural continuity

Ciberreligiones: Aproximación al discurso religioso católico y afro-americano en internet
Galavís A?ez,Edgar A;
Opción , 2003,
Abstract: this is an exploratory qualitative research which analyses two aspects of the religious fact: the catholic-christian and the afro-american, in relation to its iconic significant display in the internet network. the corpus analysis, based in the audiovisuals rhetorical of r. barthes, the arquetipal and simbols researchs of g. durand, m. eliade and the anthropological vision of pollak-eltz will focus on the image as a form of textuality within the cultural telecommunicative context. density and information criteria were used for choosing the sample which consisted of two religious homepages: 1. catholic-christian site: ewtn/global catholic network. 2. afro-american site: llé axé opo afonjá/candomblé. the discursive structure of myths and symbols of each of the selected sites will be studied, as well as its iconic-graphic and hypertextual aspect, the diagrammatic dynamics of their contest, and the creation of hyperlinks with themselves and with other parallel and complementary information areas.
Visible Proofs of Valour: The Trophy in South Italic Iconography of the Fourth Century BC
Michael T. Burns
Papers from the Institute of Archaeology , 2003, DOI: 10.5334/pia.203
Abstract: In the regions of southern Italy known to the Romans as Campania and Lucania, there are numerous tomb and vase paintings of warriors from the fourth century BC. A recurrent theme in these paintings is ‘the return of the warrior’, in which a warrior, who is often mounted, arrives home carrying a trophy of spoils stripped from defeated enemies over his shoulder. The image of the victorious warrior in these scenes has often been interpreted as an idealistic image created to flatter the martial pretences of the aristocracy and not a reality of warfare. This paper discusses the ideology behind the iconography of the trophy and attempts to understand the heroic ethos of the south Italic warrior. Using evidence from literary and archaeological sources, this study concludes that the heroic iconography was far from being just an ideal of the elite. Spoils taken from enemies were seen as visible proofs of a warrior’s prowess and valour in battle, and were a way in which even the most humble warrior could acquire prestige and honour in south Italic society.
Identifying the Practice of Tattooing in Ancient Egypt and Nubia
Geoffrey J. Tassie
Papers from the Institute of Archaeology , 2003, DOI: 10.5334/pia.200
Abstract: Tattooing was practised by many ancient societies, including the ancient Egyptians and Nubians. Egypt, for example, boasts iconographic and physical evidence for tattooing for a period spanning at least 4000 years – the longest known history of tattooing in the world. The second oldest physical evidence for tattooing worldwide was recovered from Middle Kingdom contexts in Egypt and C-Group contexts in Nubia (the Hanslabjoch ice man being the oldest). It has been suggested that tattooing was also practised in the Predynastic period as evidenced by figurines with geometric designs, however, no physical evidence for tattooing has yet been found for this early period. Strangely there is almost no mention of tattooing in ancient Egyptian written records. Historical and ethnographic records indicate that tattooing was also practised much more recently in the Coptic, Islamic and modern eras. Unlike many past societies, tattooing in Egypt appears to have been a custom practised almost exclusively on women. Tattooing tools have not yet been positively identified from ancient Egypt. Ethnographic sources suggest that bundles of metal rods were used in Egypt’s more recent history. This paper discusses physical and iconographic evidence for tattooing in ancient Egypt and investigates whether five copper rods found at Kafr Hassan Dawood, a Predynastic to Early Dynastic site in the East Delta, could be physical evidence for tattooing during this early period.

Contornos y confines del universo iconográfico precalchaquí del valle de Santa María
Scattolin,María Cristina;
Estudios atacame?os , 2006, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-10432006000200009
Abstract: this article offers a characterisation of pre-santamariana ceramics from santa maría valley, catamarca, argentina. more than 300 ceramic vessels from old collections are examined. during the first millennium ad, the attributes "dorsal-ventral symmetry", "effigy vessel", "oblique neck", and several others, were currently used and reflect a common trend, a habit, in shaping fine vessels. the analysis seeks to contribute and to adjust cultural chronological and symbolic legitimation models for the central area of northwest argentina. the results confirm that the material remains attributed to aguada style are barely represented in santa maría valley, and integrative effects originated from ambato or hualfín valley do not occur. on the contrary, the populations of santa maría valley consumed vessels whose making techniques and design ways were shared with the southern selvas occidentales, tafí valley, tapia-trancas basin, cajón valley, and southern calchaquí valley.
