Beyond Music: Non-Musical Uses of Music Instruments in Paracas and Nasca Iconography

Christiane Clados

The present article discusses some non-musical uses of the music instruments seen in representations of the ancient societies of Paracas and Nasca. This analysis focuses on representations on ceramics and textiles in which the protagonists are shown in different relationships to music instruments. Ceramics and textiles provide a detailed iconography that is occasionally confirmed by the archaeological evidence. This evidence allows me to examine an extra-musical aspect of Paracas and Nasca music instruments, particularly as used as ritual paraphernalia, parts of dress, and sacrificial offerings.

En el artículo discuto las representaciones iconográficas de algunos usos no musicales de instrumentos musicales en las antiguas sociedades paracas y nasca. El análisis enfoca escenas plasmadas en cerámica y textiles que muestran a los protagonistas en distintas relaciones con instrumentos musicales. Las escenas ofrecen una iconografía detallada que en ciertos casos está corroborada por la evidencia arqueológica. Dicha evidencia me permite examinar un aspecto extramusical de los instrumentos musicales de las culturas paracas y nasca, especialmente en cuanto a su uso como parafernalia ritual, parte del traje y ofrenda en contextos de sacrificio.
