Reproduction and use of archaeological pubic covers from Marajoara Phase, Brazil
AbstractWe have made 17 reproductions of ceramic prehistoric pubic covers (tangas) known from Marajo Island. The main purpose was to know how these artifacts were produced, how they were used, and if they reduce mobility or comfort. Some young girls and two men wore these tangas in different ways; the various positions of the strings have been registered and a comparison with prehistoric use marks has been made. Some considerations are also made on the localization of painted elements and their correlation with body parts.
