The cylinder vessel is one of the most important vessels found in Pre-Columbian art. The footed base accentuates its size and importance, combining with the detailed fresco around the vessel. The color remains subtle, using pastel hues while not losing the iconography found within the artwork, which includes a seated person surmounted by geometric objects and patterns. Such beauty cannot be replicated, yet can be easily admired, bringing us closer to understanding the past, the history of life that we are all a part of. - (PF.4646)
