Item:383541010558PICKED UP AN INCREDIBLE Saladoid culture - ARTIFACT COLLECTION, THIS PIECE IS MADE OF CLAY Saladoid culture is a pre-Columbian indigenous culture of territory in present-day Venezuela and the Caribbean that flourished from 500 BCE to 545 CE. Concentrated along the lowlands of the Orinoco River, the people migrated by sea to the Lesser Antilles, and then to Puerto Rico.Whilst this expansion was not a bid to spread influence or build an Empire, the group did leave the South American peninsula in order to explore the limits of their technology and settle on what they thought were uninhabited islands.The name Saladoid is not a direct reference to the groups genetic structure or cultural differences. Instead, it is from their archaeological categorisation which identify the peoples of the early ceramic age. As the strongest archaeological evidence in favour of the Saladoid, is their unique, ceramic pottery styles, which validate the existence of the culture.)MigrationThis culture is thought to have originated at the lower Orinoco River near the modern settlements of Saladero and Barrancas in Venezuela. Seafaring people from the lowland region of the Orinoco River migrated into and established settlements in theLesser Antilles, Puerto Rico, and Hispaniola. They displaced the pre-ceramic Ortoiroid culture. As a horticultural people, they initially occupied wetter and more fertile islands that could best support agriculture. These Indigenous peoples of the Americas were an Arawak-speaking culture.Between 500-280 BCE, they immigrated into the Lesser Antilles and Puerto Rico, eventually making up a large portion of what was to become a single Caribbean culture. In Puerto Rico, evidence of their historic settlements is found mainly in the western part of the island.Saladoid people are characterised by agriculture, ceramic production, and sedentary settlements. Their unique and highly decorated pottery has enabled archaeologists to recognise their sites and to determine their places of origin. Saladoid ceramics include zoomorphic effigy vessels, incense burners, platters, trays, jars, bowls with strap handles, and bell-shaped containers. The red pottery was painted with white, orange, and black slips THIS AND THE OTHER PIECES I WILL PUT ON ARE RARE, CHECKING GOOGLE YOU CAN SEE ONES LIKE THEM, CAN'T FIND ANY FOR SALE, ONLY IN MUSEUMS AND UNIVERSITIES MUSEUM ,LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE VERY RARE , I DO COMBINE SHIPPINGProvenance:Ownership History Not Available
