Guest Book
A superb Maya cache vessel from the Quiche area of Guatemala, ca. 400 – 700 AD. The highly burnished tripod jar is 4-3/4” high and is decorated with a trio of Saurian deities separated by panels of glyphic designs and set off with nicely carved decorative bands. The lid is decorated with incised designs and a nicely detailed head, which brings the total height of the vessel to 7-1/2”. The jar is intact, the lid has one glued break. An exceptional example with good mineral deposits.
