Description
With openwork crosses and other holes to allow for the escape of smoke, this censor rests upon a tripod base. The man protrayed has such strong, individualized features--an upturned nose, a protruding lower lip, and deep creases by the mouth--that it is tempting to see this as a specific portrait. A marvelous, detailed piece of Mayan pottery, combining personality with practical function. - (PF.0694)
