Seller: gjpaw (526) 100%, Location: Chicago, Illinois, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 252331566864 Condition: See listing, Material: Pottery, Details: Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE GJPaw Auctions is pleased to offer a beautiful Pre-Columbian painted polychrome bowl, from the Chupicuaro culture, West Mexico, 400-100 B.C. Chupicuaro is an important pre-Columbian archeological site from the late preclassical period, located in the northern mesoamerican border, west of the Mexican Plateau. The Preclassic period (up to 200 A.D.) is marked by the appearance of well-known Pre-Columbian societies like the Olmec, the Zapotecs, the city of Teotihuacan, and the Maya. Chupicuaro was a major ceramic center and recognized as producing some of the finest as well as some of the most boldly patterned polychrome ceramics in Mesoamerica. This wonderfully painted polychrome vessel in red and cream buff pigment, has the graceful form of an incurving bowl, and features on the exterior alternating groups of vertical and horizontal painted red lines geometric and linear in nature. Vessels such as these were found in tombs - the Chupicuaro inhabitants practiced a cult of the dead - and are believed to have been used for burial offerings. This extraordinarily beautiful bowl measures 6 inches in diameter by 3.25 inches in height (7.62 cm by 17.7 cm). The pot shows wear consistent with a dating to this period, including scraping on the inside, but generally is in very good condition, with no repairs. It is guaranteed authentic and would make a superb addition to any collection of Pre-Columbian ceramics.
