Over the years, we have assembled hundreds of pieces from this pre-Columbian civilization. We invite you to discover them in our little museum where we will give you cultural and historical explanations on the meanings of the different objects.
The Taino are known for their art, which is found everywhere in the Dominican Republic. Their spiritual beliefs have often been described in their works of art, sculptures and paintings. The figures often seen in Taino art are the main gods, Yucahu (god of cassava) and Atabey, mother of Yucahu and god of the moon, freshwater and fertility. The physical representation of the gods was called "Zemi", it was both a drawing and an object. These were often made of wood, stone, shell, bone, pottery and cotton.
