DescriptionMixtec Tlaloc Deity Incensario
C. 1200-1400 AD
20½" Tall x 10½" Wide
An effigy figure of the god Tlaloc, bringer of Rain retaining a large amount of original Mixtec stucco. The figure is modeled in thick pottery with a cylindrical form narrowing and supporting the head with ornate panels and flaps. The figure features prominent ringed eyes, a curling snout, split tongue, and wearing a long nose ornament. At the chest is a large bow panel with jaguar pelt yellow and black spouting and a large cone erupts from the chest and bordered with a rope design. The effigy would have served as an incense burner with the copal directly on the ground, the deity set on top. This example has the head and body reconstructed, missing parts of the chest panel, lappets on either side of head, and has poorly matched field repair of the crown, some original pieces embedded. Overall, painted in white, green, yellow, and brown original stucco. This lot requires third party shipping.
