Discovery in the cave of the island of Mona in Puerto Rico, dimensional portals? Original article by Alessandro Brizzi.

Archaeologists from the universities of Leicester and Cambridge, the British Museum and the Center for Advanced Studies in Puerto Rico have discovered the largest concentration of Taino art in the world (Taino was the first Amerindian population to populate the Caribbean, a region in which they came from South America) located on the small uninhabited island of Mona, halfway between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. At the moment thousands of Taino’s paintings and drawings have been found with animal heads and human faces, often hybrid, mixed and intertwined with abstract geometrical and curvilinear patterns unknown until today. Only 30 of the more than one hundred caves on the island have been explored, so it is likely that more paintings of these cave paintings will be discovered. Most of the artistic representations discovered so far, according to archeologists, date back to the 14th and 15th centuries, they say. Researchers have found that the techniques used in creating cave paintings are examples of the use of bat or guano droppings.

“The paintings were made with bat droppings that had more than decades absorbed yellow, brown and red minerals that naturally occur from the cave floors. Sometimes vegetable resin has been added to help the guano paint adhere to the cave walls. Other images were created simply through the use of wooden charcoal crayons. Sometimes the ancient artists would have added the vegetable resin so that the paint adhered to the walls of the cave. The technique was simple but effective, since these drawings have remained in the caves for more than 500 years. The caves played a fundamental role in the religion and society of Taino. According to the mythology of the Taino, the caves were considered the origin of the first human beings, as well as the moon and the sun.

Furthermore, the caves were often used as tombs and were considered as spaces in which ancestral spirits and deities could communicate with the living through spiritual portals or dimensional portals.

It is believed that the repercussion of this culture has surpassed the coasts of the island and has had a religious, ceremonial and ritual importance for the central Caribbean civilizations, especially in what is now Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. It is interesting to note that there are pre-Columbian archaeological evidence that binds it culturally to both places. Thanks to the Taino civilization, Europeans have discovered rubber, tobacco, potatoes, sweet corn and many fruits. In fact, the modern words “canoe”, “hammock”, “tobacco”, “hurricane”, “corn”, “potato”, “Guayama”, “papaya”, “sabana” and “Baracoa” are linguistic loans of the Taino. Furthermore, the names of many cities and countries of the Caribbean originate in this culture. The name of the Caribbean region is also of Taino origin. A Spanish observer of the sixteenth century described the Taino ceremonies in which the participants entered a trance thanks to the consumption of seeds from special plants. During these hallucinogenic processes, Taino shamans tried to communicate with the ancestors and deities of their community. It is therefore possible that the art in the rocks described in the caves of Mona was promoted by ancient hallucinogenic drugs. This archaeological work is of great importance, not only to show the world, in general, the remarkable artistic representations of a lost culture but also to help the descendants of the Tainos to better understand their origins. It is not the first time that we find indigenous people who create very, very mysterious paintings, they represent shapes and drawings, which have nothing to do with our planet Earth.

I am more and more convinced that the ancient people, the natives and others, simply represented what they saw, and in this case represented faces of extraterrestrials, grays and dimensional portals, they believed they did it too!
