CULTURE: Narino ORIGIN: Ecuador / high plains area bordering Colombia AGE: CA. 850 - 1500 A.D. DESCRIPTION: A circular pedestal footed bowl measuring 8" in diameter by 2 1/2" in height. The negative resist pigment colors are deep brown, burnt orange, and cream. The interior of the bowl depicts four condors perched on a star shape (most likely Venus) Each is flanked by a geometric design made up of triangular shapes. The rim is surrounded by dangling semi-oblong geometric elements. The exterior is further ornamented with three sets of wide cream lines of various lengths. The longest of each reaches to the center pedestal. The bowl appears to have three stabilized pressure cracks or may have been professionally reassembled from three original shards. A particularly well conceived and executed example of the type. PROVENANCE: A private Los Angeles family collection.
