DescriptionMaya Jar with Deity and Glyph Band
C. 400-600 AD
The small jar shows a rodent snouted deity with sagging eyelids and a looping band across the face. On the backside is a set of three carved glyph panels of a deity who wears the same headdress, jaw line, and eye but appears to morph into a vulture headed beast. The jar is glued from two halves, with ancient chips to the rim, and is ritually drilled through the base with a 'kill hole' that would ceremonially release the spirit of the vessel.
