Description
This cylindrical vessel with a pedestal is a popular design that can be found in the region of Central America. However, this particular piece is much smaller than what is commonly found. On one side of the vessel are the simple attributes of a human face. The subtle polychrome earth tones allow each small detail to be seen, without overshadowing anything. The decoration around the pedestal and along the neck of the piece is extremely detailed in their design, each in its own register and each with its own personality and fluidity. With such remarkable pieces for us to look at, we can slowly begin to understand the complexities and nuances of art. - (PF.4125)
