Culture: Mixtec Origin: Mexico Age: Ca. 1000 A. D. - 1500 A. D. This carefully crafted Mixtec tripod bowl measures 7” in diameter by 4 3/4” in height. It is painstakingly burnished a deep orange on the interior with three darker orange flat-tipped triangles incised and suspended from the rim. The rim is also incised and the darker orange pigment circles the bowl outlining the rim. The very tips of the three tripods have had minor restoration due to erosion from ancient usage. The vessel is otherwise as found with no plaster or paint touch up. The condition is superb and it stands on its own as a fine example of art of the period or could be added to a n existing collection as a fine example of a rare type.
