A Huge Chupicuaro Tripod Rattle Vessel
Pre-Columbian, western Mexico, ca 300 BC. Impressive pottery bowl decorated in bi-chrome pigment with three rattle-filled legs. Bowls such as this must have had a very important ceremonial significance. 14" across x 7"H. Rare to find this large!
Provenance: Ex-private Santa Fe, NM collection.
