Mayan stamp seal. Ceramic. The dancing monkey motif was common with the Maya, and extends to Maya influenced Veracruz. 2" x 1 1/4" Damage with loss. The references say these are Mayan, but they must have been items of trade, as they are found as far away as Guanajuato, evidenced by one on display at the regional museum.
