Description
Throughout the New World, the toad was known primarily for its mind-altering qualities. This stirrup-spouted vessel probably depicts the hallucinogenic Bufo Marineas. He addresses us with a majestic and knowing smile, as if he has always been aware of a universe beyond the tropical forest in which he was born. - (PF.0609)
