ROCCHIETTI, Ana María. Three rock art sites in Comechingones Hill, Cordoba Province. Rev. Mus. Antropol. [online]. 2016, vol.9, n.1, pp.21-34. ISSN 1852-060X.

This essay presents  three rock art sites, considers it "transversal" in their enigmatic  pictorial content, offers an analysis with the perspective that  it demanded a hallucinated imagination  and that  was an ideology of a similar consistency. This art is located  in the Sierra de Comechingones, Province of Cordoba. It seems  to be alienation in graphic language,  an experiment  in painting and deployment of a common psychic energy. Geoforms containing  them  have a high visual impact; art and rock form a simbolic whole.  The rock is a signifier and precedes the art; it performs a "cut" about  real in such a way that it predetermines the significance. Therefore, any rock site is unique. Rocks defined the charm of the place of rock art before this existed.

Keywords : Rock art; Comechingones Hill; Rock art and rock' synthesis; Hallucination and charm; Rock art and Ideology.
