Abstract

Mesoamerica is a cultural area known by the resistance of several of its features to the passage of time. One of them remained in existence in the long duration: the "ritual deposit", also named offerings, is defined as a figurative ritual, based on material and miniaturized representations, generally accompanied by the sacrifice of animals or men and / or the gift of food ; it has a great antiquity and persists in use in the indigenous contemporary populations. The article examines the evidences of this ceremonial practice, as well as its characteristics.
