Dolphins at the British Museum: Zoomorphic Calusa Sinkers

3 December 2015

Abstract

The subject of everyday or “mundane” artistic expression in Native American material culture does not always take into account the idea that aesthetic design can have explicit practical as well as decorative function. This article explores this idea through objects from the Floridian archaeological collections at the British Museum.
