Double Vision: Opposition and Inversion in Taino Representational Art 

 

Lecture by Jay VanderVeen, Assistant Professor, Indiana University South Bend.  The Taino, the indigenous population of the Dominican Republic, made pottery that symbolized several ideas at one time, depending on the viewer's perspective. They combined representations of life and death, earth and sea, and male and female in one ceramic vessel or stone figure. Yet it is the interplay between the oppositions that seemed to be important to them.
