Note on the Archaeology of Chiriqui


This brief 1913 article argues that the "...faunal environment of a given region is apt to be reflected in its primitive art, especially when the art is primarily of local origin." The region of interest is Chiriqui Panama. The author, George MacCurdy, describes the animal forms of the ceramic art found in the region to illustrate his argument.
