secondary burial jar ,cotabato aera ,15th ,philippines
secondary burial jar ,cotabato aera ,mindanao province 92cm.Several burial caves were found in the southwesten portion of cotabato province.These caves had a large number of urns and lids carves from limestone the average size was about 60cm which would be too small for primary burial .the lids were various :some of gable form ressembling the roof of houses.some conical forms extended to vertical elements often carved into human heador the upper part of a human figure .Conclusions have been made that high rank persons had an antropomorphic lid .i did a surface test on one of the jars whith electronic microscope .it shows vegetal grow after decalcification,and many scientific details that i can explain in french but not in english!!!!:usure en feuilletage des parties en quartz,avec les parties les plus dures saillantes .Phase végétale postérieure à la décalcification .(the erosion is not regular as it would have been with an acid artificial forged patina)
