Intricate Details and Artistic Narrative of this

Michoacan Effigy Vessel

 

This is a superb globular effigy vessel from the Michoacan culture in Mexico. Ca. 100 B.C. – 250 A.D. Stands over 10″ in height. Cream paint over a highly burnished red slip. A sweet rectangular face on an extended rim with arms painted in front. An additional representation of a bird with outstretched wings in reverse on the sides. Ample dendrites and mineral deposits throughout.

A comparable example is published in The Teuchitlan Tradition, and a similar pot is owned by the American Museum of Natural History, albeit without the superior quality and size possessed by this Galeria Contici vessel.
