A large Maya zoomorphic cylinder from the Tiquisate area of Guatemala, ca. 400 – 700 AD. It is 7-1/2” high and depicts an armadillo. The head, legs and tail of the animal are hand-modeled onto the chamber, which is tiered to emulate the leathery armor covering the armadillo's body. The front side of the chamber surrounding the animal is enhanced with paint and decorative elements. In excellent condition, with strong mineral deposits.
