An excellent Maya carved cylinder from El Salvador, ca. 400 - 800 AD. This large example is 7-1/2" high, 6" in diameter and is decorated with a pair of crisply carved figures. Each is wearing a complex headdress with flowing backrack and simple loincloth. The carved panels are separated by resist painted panels of circular designs, with stripes decorating the concave bottom. Intact, with strong mineral deposits on the cream slip.
