Introduction 1 The widespread presence of fired-clay figurines throughout the Early and Middle Formative periods in Mesoamerica ca.
Flannery and Marcusp. Similar patterns have been documented to the southeast among contemporaneous Zapotec villages Marcusp. Middle Formative figurines recovered from the Pacific Coast site of La Victoria, Guatemala, show evidence for the intentional removal of mouths prior to discard Coep. Rosemary Joyce gave us advice for collecting figurine data and its categorization.
CMAT BY IMS PDF Revista de Universidad y Sociedad del Conocimiento, 3 1 Regardless of figurine function, we infer that these actions demonstrate the importance of viewing figurines as animated objects, imbued with the ability to significantly change or alter social relationships through ritual performance. An excavated collection of year-old fired-clay figurines from the Mixteca Alta, Oaxaca, Mexico, provides evidence for household practices of embodiment at a time of emerging social differences.
Both locally and foreign made pottery also appeared bearing the pan-Mesoamerican symbolic complex long associated with the Gulf Coast Olmec.
This conjunctive and contextual approach e. At a fundamental level, the Mixtec believe that the world contains a life force that can manifest itself in various objects, food, structures, natural features, natural forces and even social relationships Monaghan ibid.
Figurine Embodiment and Household Ritual in an Early Mixtec Village Tayata was among the earliest complex societies in the region, contemporary with the Gulf Coast Olmec and antecedent to the first-generation cities Balkansky a, b. LaphamHeather A. These cremations may have been important individuals within the community, and their special mortuary treatment through burning may have been crucial in their life-cycle transition to ancestors. Community support for constructionist learning.
Interestingly, the smoke from the bundles forms speech scrolls Bellas ibid. A also shows evidence of burning across much of the face and of the upper right leg, similar to the excavated human and dog cremations.
This view has considerable time depth and is shared among Otomanguean peoples, including the Mixtec and Zapotec Marcus et al. We suggest that these burials and others from Tayata provide an important microcosm of ritual activity descargra the Middle Formative transition, and are useful for understanding the Tayata figurine assemblage. The depositional contexts of this feature were complex, and the burial cut itself showed evidence for later mixing of stratigraphic levels.
Drawing from these works, we propose an emerging analytical desargar on figurines that integrates bioarchaeological, faunal, ethnographic, and ethnohistoric information. In addition, a small v-shaped cutmark was found on one of the ribs, which may have occurred post-mortem ibid. Michael Whalenpp. Chapman John Fragmentation in archaeology: This interment was unique as it contained a human skull where the occipital bone was intentionally removed from the back of the skull and placed over the face prior to burial.
The refitting of such figurines is impossible despite the nearly complete excavation of structures and their associated middens. This conjunctive approach stemming from the writings of Alfonso Caso remains of our most productive archaeological research methods and has inspired considerable research summarized in Balkansky Balkansky and Ayla M.
Although the post-depositional processes of this burial are not entirely clear, there is no evidence for disturbance of the pottery offerings associated with the burial. Although rare, such linkages between ceramic figurines and actual bodies are found elsewhere in the Formative period Mixteca Alta. TOP Related.

Gozahn The archaeological contexts at Tayata allow for an integrated application of embodiment theory with cross-field anthropological data, and reveal a deep-seated Mixtec worldview concerning the animism of corporeal objects. Como catqlogo mencionado por Resta: The cranium showed evidence for pre-mortem modification in the form of lamdoid flattening, and the cranium and several of the longbones and ribs were potentially exposed to the elements prior to interment based on sun-bleaching and rodent gnaw marks. We have argued that interpretations based on archaeological context and multiple lines of data can illuminate interpretations of the ritual uses and meanings of figurines in Formative Mesoamerica. Brian Strossp. Middle Formative recovered from the Pacific Coast site of La Victoria, Guatemala, show evidence for the intentional removal of mouths prior to discard Coep. Log In Sign Up. This ritual can take place in graveyards, adding to the metaphorical notion of death associated with the destruction of the candle by fire ibid.

Such patterns were encountered on two examples of well-crafted figurine heads A from the Early Formative; A from the Middle Formative catalobo with status-marking adornment including head wraps, earflares, and a mask. South and Andrew K. Such emphasis on metamorphosis is particularly characteristic of Otomanguean religions, including the Mixtec and Zapotec populations in Oaxaca Marcus; Marcus and Flannery In the Valley of Oaxaca, a decrease in household descarga use is attributed to an increasing reliance on full-time priests to execute ritual ceremonies, particularly in the late Middle Formative Marcusp.
