CULTURE: Cocle ORIGIN: Panama AGE: Ca. 600 A. D. - 900 A. D. SIZE: 9 3/4" in diameter by 4 3/4" in height DESCRIPTION: An exceptional elaborately decorated fantastical pedestal footed plate from Panama.The stylized other-worldly swirling mythalogical zoomorphic deity dominates the visual field of the plate. The piece has superb paint preservation. The paint colors are black, deep red, and plum set against a cream colored background. Many scholars postulate that the ceramics created by the Cocle people are arguably some of the finest artistic endeavors created by any culture found in South and Central America prior to The Spanish conquest. It is a difficult point of view to argue against....The bowl is intact with one small pressure crack professionally stabilized.
