A fine Maya Chiefs bowl from El Salvador, ca. 400 - 700 AD. This lovely polychrome is 7-1/8" in diameter and is decorated with a group of five seated lords presenting an offering. The interior features a trio of large feline heads, each adorned with ear spools and speech scroll emanating from the mouth. Two drill holes are evidence of an ancient crack repair, which has been restored. The drill marks were left, as they show the importance this vessel had to its Maya owner. Vivid paint, good mineral deposits.
