Lay hermit, companion, and chronicler of Christopher Columbus during his second voyage, Brother Ramón Pané leads us through his fascinating account into the world of the Taíno: their social and political organization, beliefs, and religious practices. The result of a collaboration between the British Museum in London, the Museu Barbier-Mueller d’art precolombí, and the Museo de América in Madrid, this exhibition presents, for the first time in Spain, the major Taíno artworks from the renowned British institution.
