CULTURE: Maya ORIGIN: Mexico/Central America AGE: Ca. 400 - 860 A.D. SIZE: 3"in height by 4" in width. A museum quality custom metal display stand is included in the sale. When mounted the overall height is 6". DESCRIPTION: A buff pottery hollow urn fragment from a large Maya urn depicting a monkey with an animated and delighted expression. The lively face radiates a humorously cunning expression. He is sporting ear spools and has his tongue extended in a teasing manner. The Maya defined the monkey as a sign of playfulness and sexuality. Even today these playful creatures are a favorite for most animal lovers. A great addition to any collection and one that can't help but bring a smile to your face.
