Panamanian Polychrome Water Jar Creature Motifs

Lot 0059 Details

Description
Pre-Columbian, Central America, Panama, Tonosi, ca. 600 to 800 CE. A beautiful pottery vase with a round-bottomed globular body and a cylindrical neck that gradually widens to a flared rim. The vessel is beautifully decorated with three panels on the body: one with an eye-like motif and the others with abstract black-painted barbed serpentine creatures. On the neck are four more panels containing eye motifs and mythical creatures. To the ancient Panamanians, these exquisitely painted motifs would have conjured a known mythic or Shamanic being. The black on cream decorative panels are surrounded by vibrant orange-red slip, and cream slip adorns the lower body of the vessel. A lovely vessel! Size: 7.375" in diameter at widest point x 10.875" H (18.7 cm x 27.6 cm)

Provenance: ex-Hilja K. Herfurth collection, Denver, Colorado, USA
