Costa Rican Rattle Bowl
A fine El Bosque rattle bowl from Costa Rica, ca. 400 700 AD. This unusual example of a Guacimo Red on Buff Group type is 7 in diameter and features a trio of protruding heads, each containing a rattle. Their formation surrounding the chamber creates an image of reptilian deities surrounding the contents of the vessel. Strong paint, heavy root marks and an old field repair.
