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