A large Manteno figural vessel from Ecuador, ca. 1000 – 1500 AD. This choice blackware example is 9” high and features a beautifully detailed head emanating from the upper chamber. The conical headdress is etched into the broad rim using a technique alternating burnished and matte areas. Intact, nicely burnished, good mineral deposits.

Cf. Valdez “Amerindian Signs”, page 177.
