A striking Maya polychrome plate from Guatemala, ca. 600 - 900 AD. The plate is 12-3/4" in diameter and shows a frontal image of Tlaloc as a War Deity. The other objects shown are probably eccentric flint forms for bloodletting rituals. A drilled kill hole in its center conveys the plate's importance, having served a ceremonial function. Professionally restored from 5 pieces with no new material added. Vivid paint, good mineral deposits and root marks. Makes an impressive display and comes with stand.
