LOPEZ, Mariel Alejandra. Imágenes postconquista y etnogénesis en la Quebrada de Humahuaca, Jujuy, Argentina: Hipótesis de trabajo arqueológico. Mem. am. [online]. 2006, n.14, pp. 167-202. ISSN 1851-3751.
Currently, and from the standpoint of Archaeology, very little is known about the contact situation between indigenous and Hispanic people in Quebrada de Humahuaca. However the occasional mention of some objects belonging to the European material culture or their rock art, found mainly in indigenous pre-Hispanic sites is an exception. Based on contemporary research and studies of collections and/or archaeological remains of the period embracing the first contact situations until the establishment of the colonial system in the region new hypothesis and archaeological interpretations appeared. These together with approaches coming from Andean History, Ethnohistory and Art History have opened new lines of research regarding objects identified as mobile art and the meaning of their representations according to specific contexts of use proposed by archaeological records and documentary sources.
