DescriptionOrnate Maya Plumbate Jaguar with Rattle Head
Maya, Southern Lowlands
C. 800-1200 AD
5¾" Tall x 8" Long
The beautiful rendering has a fine detailed hollow jaguar head with a rattle bead, the feet in relief, and wears a wide notched collar decoration with floral impressions and notched edging. The legs are in low relief with carved details including hooks and spotting that seems to depict serpent deities. The vessel is covered with a Plumbate surface inside and out, arguably, a real glaze that is lead based, and exhibits a vibrant orange to golden brown surface. Areas surrounding the body have a strong calcification deposit, the surface intact below, and is excellent, solid condition with only a few minor nicks. A very well detailed example.
