Taino stone pestle, pre-Columbian archaeology, Greater Antilles

Ancient stone pestle, made by the Taino Indian people several hundred years ago. Anthropozoomorphic figure represented in a folded position with its hands in its mouth, with large eyes. Chiseled geometric details typical of Taino art.

In its juice with traces of seniority. Beautiful patina.

The Taïnos were an Amerindian population present in the Greater Antilles and the Caribbean until the 16th century. They were very skilled in pottery, stone and woodwork. The ethnic group was decimated with the arrival of Europeans, due to disease and forced labor.

This is a very old authentic animist object that can complete an archeology collection or a cabinet of curiosities.
