Nicoya Polychrome Bowl

A wonderful Nicoya footed bowl from Costa Rica, ca. 800 1200 AD. This choice Mora Polychrome type is 6-5/8 in diameter and is decorated with two representations of the Two-Headed Monster. The intervening panels are intricate designs associated with serpent and jaguar motifs. The flared pedestal is painted black and is separated from the rest of the designs by blood red stripes. In exceptional condition, with strong dendrites and root marks.
