Prints (0)


Summary This is Taíno Ritual Seat called a Duho. The Duho is a Pre-Columbian wooden seat made in the form of a man on all fours. It was made by the Taino people of the Dominican Republic. These seats were found in the houses of 'Taino caciques' or chiefs throughout the Caribbean region. They figured prominently in the maintenance of Taino political and ideological systems and were literally seats of power, prestige, and ritual. Duhos were made before Christopher Columbus landed in the Caribbean and is an important remnant of the Taino culture and civilization that existed before the arrival of Europeans. This is a replica #3dprint of a Duho, and can be purchased here: etsy.me/2zb5ez4 Please post a photo to share if you print this, and check out my other scans of skulls and bones at http://www.thingiverse.com/dricketts/designs.
