DescriptionMaya Orangeware Vase of Man Missing Eyes
Maya, Southern Lowlands
C. 200-600 AD
7¾" Tall x 6" Wide
The entire vessel serves as the effigy, being thinly crafted to depict a round bodied seated human with long fingers, a band at the waist, and with a drooping head, the hair in long matted strands, and his eye sockets hollow and empty; most likely, depicting a captive who has had his eyeballs pried out. The vessel is only lightly cleaned, in solid condition, with strong ancient encrustations, the lower half of face being modern repair, else, intact and with surface pitting.
Estimate: $800 - $1,200.
