Pre-Colombian Art

The Erin Ritual Bottle with its red designs on a white background, painted negatively is an excellent example of Pre-Columbian art from Trinidad and Tobago. This bottle links the Erin settlement in South Oropouche, Trinidad, to the settlement of Los Barrancos of the Lower Orinico, Venezuela. (See Strabon-Caraibes, Trinidad and Tobago – Pre Columbian).

Erin Ritual Bottle | A.D. 350-650
