Maya Ulua Vessel

A Maya footed short/wide cylinder from the Ulua Valley of Honduras, Ca. 600-900 A.D.

This cylinder measures 6" wide by 4 3/4" tall. It features two different shaman figures in elaborate ceremonial dress, each wearing a large backrack and extending a ceremonial staff. One figure is shown wearing a stylized Jaguar headdress, while the other wears one showing a bird form. The figures are facing, and are separated by two large flower symbols, that likely represent the Maya K'in flower/glyph- which symbolizes the sun/day and is related to the Maya calendar. The highly animated figural representations on this example are about as desirable as they get for Maya Ulua Valley pieces. Ex. Riverbend Gallery
