Pre-Columbian Costa Rica, ca. 800-1200 CE stone jaguar metate, hand-carved from a single piece of volcanic stone with a slight concave bowl
used for grinding grains, medicines and cocoa.
Pre-Columbian art refers to the visual arts of indigenous peoples of the Caribbean, North, Central, and South Americas
until the late 15th and early 16th centuries, and the time period marked by Christopher Columbus' arrival in the Americas.
Pre-Columbian art thrived throughout the Americas from at least 13,000 BCE to the European conquests.
