Design of the ethnography and ethnography of the design.

Abstract in spanish

We tried to deepen in the design and images present along the anthropological writing. Both textual and image verisimilitude exercises forming ethnographic textuality can be considered a set of traces constituting an specific object: the ethnographic object.
As such, it can be compared with other productions of our cultures. We took as examples of ethnographic object analysis George Catlin’s works and the researches about it carried out by Clastres and Crapanzano.
