Taíno Figurine

MASK: Masks represent the faces of real people, animals or mythical characters. In early cultures, many believed that the entity represented on the mask could possess the wearer by virtue of magic. The holes on each side of the mask were usually decorated with straw.

Indigenous Taíno people were the largest group inhabiting the Caribbean islands at the time of European contact in 1492. Their territory extended from Venezuela to Florida including the Bahamas, being Cuba, La Hispañola and Puerto Rico the most populated territories. By 1550 the Taíno were almost extinct due to illnesses brought to their territories by Spanish colonizers, however, their art and vocabulary survived being kept alive by ‘mestizo’ descendants.

CLAY FIGURINES
These Taíno artwork figurines are handmade from clay and fire, then painted in a variety of neutral and bright colors.

Figura taína

MÁSCARA: las máscaras representan los rostros de personas reales, animales o personajes míticos. En las primeras culturas, muchos creían que la entidad representada en la máscara podía poseer al usuario en virtud de la magia. Los agujeros en cada lado de la máscara generalmente estaban decorados con paja.

Los indígenas taínos eran el grupo más numeroso que habitaba las islas del Caribe en el momento del contacto europeo en 1492. Su territorio se extendía desde Venezuela hasta Florida, incluidas las Bahamas, siendo Cuba, La Hispañola y Puerto Rico los territorios más poblados. Para 1550, los taínos estaban casi extintos debido a enfermedades traídas a sus territorios por los colonizadores españoles, sin embargo, su arte y vocabulario sobrevivieron siendo mantenidos vivos por los descendientes “mestizos”.
