Pottery vessel with a form of a goblet (heig.: 36 cm; width.: 42; rim diam.: 36 cm; pedestal diam.: 17 cm) from Ninhal archaeological site, Municipality of Iguatama, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. Found at an excavation, in dozens of pieces, closely located to a huge funerary pottery urn, which indicates it as a votive artifact. Silvia C. Lima made the pot restoration, which nowadays is at the museum public exposition. This kind of pottery has been linked to the Aratu/Sapucaí Tradition, an archaeological culture that is spread along the Upper São Francisco Basin. A material mark of agriculturalist indigenous people that occupied the region between the XIII and XVI centuries A.D.
