Stone tools to grind corn and spices seen in the archaeological site of Yagul, in southern Mexico.
In Spanish are called metate and molcajete, from native words, but I do not know equivalent words in English.

Scanned and resized.
Taken 15 years ago with a Nikon N5005

Bom dia Pedro,
Excelente digitalização de uma magnífica foto com uma das heroinas da fotografia em papel, a Nikon N5005.
Muito tempo correu desde esses primitivos pilões.
Um abraço,

Hello Pedro

I can taste the fresh corn tortilla on the fire as we speak. A very sharp and easy to define image of these tools. Thanks for sharing

Hi Pedro, Nice presentation of these stone tools of the old days. We sure do see modern version of these tools in nowadays store. Of course, they have been modified and machine made with better shape and texture. Good use of lights and perfect focus. Excellent angle taken with different perspectives. Thank for sharing
