Central American Jaguar Fetish Pottery Figural Vessel
Made in Honduras, Most likely from the Lenca Tribe

This is a spectacular piece featuring motifs typical of pre-columbian pottery from Central America. Reflects the mesoamerican reverance for the Jaguar, as well as ancient geometerics.

While it is structuraly sound, this is an older piece of pottery. It shows signs of the age it bears. There is a hairline crack that does not appear to go all the way through. There are a couple rough areas that appear to have happened before the piece was painted, a couple that may have occured later. Some scuffing and scratches are also present. Also, the words "Honduras, C.A." have been written on the back of the vessel with two colors of marker. They are not original to the piece and I believe that this could be removed with a fingernail, but I have not attempted to remove it. Please review the photos carefully. All that being said, this piece is an attention getter! I love that it shows the signs of true age and wear - I hope you can appreciate them too.

Measures approx. 8.25 inches high, 6 inches wide and 7.5 inches deep (from nose to tail) 6.5 inches deep inside.
