A wonderful Tairona crocodilian deity vessel from Colombia, ca. 1000 – 1500 AD. This large effigy is 12” long, 10-1/4” high and depicts the reptilian with the head arched up. He is wearing a solar symbol headdress and rows of teeth surround the long snout. Heavy mineral deposits overall.

Cf. Labbe, “Colombia Before Columbus”, page 174.
