Large ritual Pre-Columbian incensario, Mixtec-Zapotec, West Mexico, presumably representing a corn god. Pre 900 AD. 15" high, 17" deep. This type of ritual object is quite rare. Incensarios were used in various cultures of ancient Mexico, and throughout Mesoamerica, for offerings of burning incense during religious and other ceremonial rituals.
