An excellent Nicoya tripod vessel from Costa Rica, ca. 1000 – 1350 AD. This excellent Papagayo urn is 10-1/4” high and features a beautifully sculpted jaguar molded to the front of the chamber. The broad band decorating the upper half of the vessel depicts a pair of stylized feline creatures, with linear décor adorning the rim. The hollow legs contain rattles. Overall in excellent condition, with vivid paint, good mineral deposits and root marks.
