DescriptionMaya Painted Plate with Deity Head
C. 600-900 AD
2¾" Tall x 13¼" Wide
The offering plate sits on three nub feet, the interior painted in black and red on an orange base, and is in excellent condition. The central panel depicts a large elaborate deity head having central eye, an upturned snout, toothy mouth with a split tongue, and series of crests surrounding. The rim has alternating sets of six black dots and five red dots and the wall washed in bold deep orange. Plate is in excellent, solid, undamaged condition with a drilled 'kill hole' directly in the center, a few surface scrapes, and very nice. This lot requires third party shipping.
