    The statue i picked was from the metropolitan museum of art called the Taino stone. It was symbolism for the fear of death. This small pendant carved of a white speckled stone, shows a seated skeletal figure holding his knees and wearing two pairs of earspools. The posture, seen on many ritual Taino objects, is conceptually linked to duhos, or ceremonial seats, which were symbols of social prestige and political and spiritual power in Taino culture. Decorated with elaborate carvings, chiefs sat on duhos during important social events and religious specialists used them in rituals involving communion with the spirit world
