A large and rare ceremonial wooden Bowl. Carved into a full size Zemi with arms lifted to the head on one side, with legs bent back on the other. The center body is a deep bowl with a lovely and unique outer decoration. Twenty perforated holes encompass the scalloped edges. Other than the fact that wooden Pre-Columbian objects in itself are rare, we seldom see Taino art with the accentuation of the female gender. Scares in form, beautiful in style. Dense and heavy piece. Measures an impressive 14.5”/36.83 cm in length, 6”/15.24 cm wide.

Hispaniola, ca 1200-1500 AD
