Tablets in the Bolaños Culture and their Probable Function
María Teresa Cabrero G. • español
Abstract. Tablets are objects whose function is unknown. Their shape is rectangular with variable dimensions. The great majority are flat, but there are slightly curved specimens; the former were recovered inside housing units and, in Bolaños, there is a single curved specimen associated with a burial. These types of objects have a wide diversity of decoration; they can be painted, punctured, incised or engraved, but always around a quadrangular center with crossed lines. The distribution of the tablets encompasses the main sites of Zacatecas and Jalisco with local variants.
Keywords: Western Mexico, Bolaños, Tablets.
