Polished stone. This mortar, which has stylistic elements common to Mesoamerican cultures, presents pairs of figures arranged symmetrically in opposition. The piece was found by workers in the service of the engineer João Henrique Diniz and delivered to the Rondon Commission, who offered it to the National Museum on March 21, 1929.
