Pre-Columbian Maya Pottery Urn from Guatemala, El Quiche type, ca. 600-900 CE. A pottery burial urn or in a style known as the Quiche (K'iche') Type, from highland Guatemala, featuring a cylindrical body and matching feline lid! The mold made cat is a representation of a fierce jaguar - faint remains of black spots are painted over the ochre surface. The jaguar was revered by the Maya as the mightiest wild feline and thought to possess supernatural powers to cross to the underworld, acting as mediators between this world and the afterlife - a fitting symbol for this funerary vessel! 7" in height. Rare!
