CULTURE: Chiriqui ORIGIN: Panama (Chiriqui Provence) AGE: Ca. 300 - 900 A.D. SIZE: 5 1/2" diameter {including applied creature) by 3 3/4" in height. DESCRIPTION: A delightful nicely burnished intact bisqueware tripod bowl supported by three hollow legs with clay rattles still intact. The round bowl is ornamented with a stylized elfin zoomorphic figure on the side rim with a tail flaring to the right. This extra applied feature is what makes the bowl special and gives it great charm. There is minor scaling to a few areas of the rim due to ancient usage. PROVENANCE: The Dr. Glen E. Murphy collection via inheritance.
