I was made aware the Peabody Museum at Harvard University was holding a number of the ‘tablet‘ discoveries of William Niven from the Valley of Mexico. I have obtained permission to include images of three unnumbered ‘tablets‘ in the My-Mu.com blog.
The catalog description reads:
Inventory Description: Ground stone, architectural element, rectangular, highly porous conglomerate?, two perforations, carved zoomorphic design, reptile?, painted orange & red
Please note the image is protected by copyright by The Peabody Museum at Harvard University
This is the first tablet I have seen with holes, apparently for mounting.
More to follow…
