Pre Columbian Pottery Rattle, 550-850 CE

In the traditional form of an important Mayan personage or diety, this pottery rattle is in very good condition. While none of the original pigment paint remains, other than some traces of white slip, the features and garments remain clear. The hair style, jewelry and robes depict the elaborate ritual traditions of the Maya. This figure with upraised hands may have been a priest. The ear spools, elaborate arm adornment, necklace and robe all tell us he was important. No cracks or breaks. Height 7.75", width at shoulders 4.75". Probably Period 550-850 CE Pre Columbian.
