DescriptionMaya Molded Bowl with Interweaving Deities
Maya, Southern Lowlands
C. 200-600 AD

The deep bowl stands on a carved pedestal having pyramid designs, the body decorated with an ornate interwoven design of deities, monsters, and human heads pointed in various directions. The elaborate depictions all exhibit multiple imagery as viewed from different directions. Included are serpent snouted deities with scrolling breath that morphs into a man's face being consumed by the deity and bird beaked deities in mirror image in every direction viewable. Exhibits a strong Teotihuacan influence. The bowl is thinly modeled and delicate, having only a few light lines with expert matching fill and appears intact and excellent.
