Representation as the axis in an anthropological study.

Abstract in spanish

As part of the doctoral thesis of the author, this article is an interesting reflection about yawar celebration (or blood celebration): a run type of bulls, in which a condor is tied to the back of a bull that is realize in some towns in southperuvians Andes. The idea of this work is to incorporate in the analysis the audio-visual productions associated to this cultural event, with which it is tried to reach conclusions that no only talk about the written material but that also to the audio-visual material in the Bull Run with Condor. In addition the camera is incorporated like tool of analysis of the same investigation, from the documentary production about the celebration and like methodological proposal that allows to engage in a dialog with the other, and at the same time that to establish critics questions to the own investigator.
