An excellent Maya polychrome cylinder from the Sula Valley of Honduras, ca. 500 – 800 AD. This corseted vessel is 5” high and 5-1/2” in diameter at the flared rim. It is decorated with a pair of characteristic glyph bands depicting deity heads and a central register with a stylized guilloche pattern executed in negative style against a black background. Vivid paint, strong mineral deposits, a couple professionally restored stress fractures are barely visible.
