Puerto Rico Vacation Part Three
We kept going along to the rest of the Island where we went tothe Cemi Museum, from the Taino Indians. A Cemi is a representation of their deities. The museum is small , but it is just a place of history. Here you will see a ceremonial ring that they will use as a belt for some kind of game. Just know that it looks heavy and who knows what kind of game it was, but I bet the loser did not have a good time.
Here is another picture of some artifacts that the Chief carried that denoted power, well the long stick is about 12 to 14 inches long and I will leave it at that. The power of men seems to always be attached to phallic objects no matter what culture is addressed, I guess the chief will have a fast red car these days.
There are many more indian ceremonial parks and artifacts throught out the Island. The indians became part of our blood genetics, but the indians themselves dissappeared due to slavery and western diseases like chickenpox et cetera.
Thank you for stopping by and come back later there is still more pictures to share.
