Pre-Columbian, Mexico and Guatemala, Peten Basin, Maya Late Classic Period, ca. 550 to 950 CE. A thin walled ceramic bowl with polychrome motifs ringing the exterior. As these are somewhat worn, it is difficult to discern their original meaning. However, the bowl itself has a nice form, with steep walls and tapering inward at the base to a small disc foot. The Peten region was one of the most densely populated regions in the world during the Maya period, home to several million people and many powerful urban areas, with their own style of distinctive artwork. Size: 5.25" W x 4.25" H (13.3 cm x 10.8 cm)
Provenance: ex-Claude Cassuto collection, France, before 1969
