Description

This boat-shaped figurine with iron-spotted decorations shows the affinity of our ancestors with sea travel. It was found on an island two hours away from the nearest island of Mindoro by boat. Ceramic figurines found in grave sites throughout China and Southeast Asia present clues to the lifestyle and values of our ancestors.
