Taíno Vase and Catholic Rosary

The Taíno people created all kinds of different pottery styles and commonly featured abstracted anthropomorphic and zoomorphic figures and geometric line work. The Taino had their own religious beliefs and practices before the introduction to Catholicism in the 18th Century by the Spanish. Catholicism would eventually become one of the main religions practiced in the Caribbean and Latin America.
