cemí . . . .

Posted by at 2:47 PM Read our previous post


A cemí is an indigenous Taino figurine. It is a fertility symbol that also represents the island itself (Puerto Rico in this case), with a mountain ridge running down its back. I picked this one up in a little shop in Ponce on my last trip to visit my mom.
