Abstract. The decorated pottery from the Bolaños Culture expresses the cultural dynamics that the people developed. Not only did they reproduce the decorative motifs from neighboring cultures, but they also added a very particular, unmatched, distinctive touch. The provenience of these motifs can be identified in each type of pottery, demonstrating the activities that this culture undertook through their commercial exchange routes as an endless source of economic sustenance. In the period of shaft tombs, the religious ideology of the Bolaños Culture was printed on urns. This iconography and the types of pottery identified are testimony to the people with whom the Bolaños Culture maintained contact of various kinds.
