Pre-columbian Rio Magdalena Burial Urn from Colombia, ca. 800-1000 A.D. On the top of the lid of this beautiful urn sits a full figure with his hands resting on it's knees. What makes this particular urn remarkable is it still has its original gold nose ring. The bottom of the urn has two bird's or avians on each side. One of the bird's is missing a head. A nice and large example. Displays impressively as is or can be restored and would easily be worth $5,000+.

Measurement: 19-1/4" in height.
