Tainos 1000 AD - 1492 AD Mesoamerica
Taino art centered on cult objects associated with the veneration of zemis-revered deities, ancestors, or landscape spirits. The term also refers to the idols and fetishes that were believed to be inhabited by powerful spirits. Large, cadaverous stone heads are thought to represent the deity Maquetaurie Guayaba, lord of the Land of the Dead. Zemis were kept in the home or in sanctuaries where they were honored with food and gifts.
