A History of the Caribbean in 100 Objects

Episode 2 — An Adorno from Brighton Beach

March 22, 2016

In this episode we will discuss the ceramic faces that adorned the rims, handles and walls of pots made by the indigenous people of the Caribbean. The object that is central to this episode comes from the Brighton Beach site on St. Vincent. Listen to us talk about the iconography, symbolism and archaeological context of this beautiful example of these quintessentially pre-colonial objects. Also we will explain why a Saladoid is not a type of dressing, but one of the major cultural phenomena of the Caribbean in the first millennia BC and AD.
