Chiriqui Tripod Cocoa Pot
Down (child)

A Cocoa tripod vessel with unusual open looped legs. Chiriqui culture, Panama/Costa Rica. Ca. 800 AD. Typically these Cocoa/Chocolate pots have solid legs which at times contain rattles. The legs on this vessel are unique and appear snake-like with the upper portion finalized with the sacred frog. Outer bowl is black with the internal surface area slipped in red. Decorated with roundel appliqué along its outer side. Good amount of overall deposits and fire clouding. Repair is evident to a quarter section of the cup. Kept in an original excavated state. A nice utilitarian piece. Measures 6" in height.
