An excellent Cocle figural effigy jar from Panama, ca. 1300 – 1500 AD. This choice El Hatillo style vessel is 6-1/2” high and depicts a mythological creature with large claws. The stylized facial features are painted on the head and four feet are indicated along the bottom edge. Intact, with strong paint and good mineral deposits.

Cf. Labbé “Guardians of the Life Stream”, page 49.
