Archaeological Group: Northern Mexico Ethnographic Group:
Description: "This unique object was uncovered in the general ceremonial area in the U-Bar cave. It measures 1.6 x 1.9 inches in diameter and 2.6 inches high. A set of nine truncated corn stalks are wrapped with a shred of corn husk and tied at the base with a square knot. The exterior covering is of clay, mixed with pulverized corn husk and a fixative which may be honey. The top and bottom of the bundle are left exposed. Tiny holes, probably feather sockets, are punched in the tops of some of the corn stalks (Fig. 51). This object is reminiscent of corn fetishes or bundles still used ritualistically in many of the pueblos."
