Bead Artwork from Ancient Ecuador: Granite Bay Graphic Design–Group I

Top: Bat. Bottom: Bat.
All images and descriptions are taken from the book “Indian Designs from Ancient Ecuador” by Frederick W. Shafer. Learn more about the book here. The artwork has been colorized by Granite Bay Design from the original black and white versions. The wide bands above show the bead artwork flattened out. Next to that is what the bead looks like with the pattern applied. Finally, there is a small circle containing a black and white version of the bead at actual size. The author of the book, Frederick W. Shaffer, took great care in reproducing the artwork as it was originally rendered. Learn more about that here.
