Within the framework of a project centered in the study of the images and identities before and after the Spanish conquest one discusses here to the nature of certain marks and some patterns and elements of design, that would have worked in the same way that marks, in ceramic material registries coming from contexts of funeral and domestic type of the Quebrada de Humahuaca, dated between centuries XV and XVII.
