A magnificent example of Mayan painting at its height, this vase conveys the feverish, surreal aura of a dream. In vivid detail, it depicts gods and monsters of the Mayan pantheon, involved in combat and other rituals. Though the brushwork is refined, almost delicate, the vase radiates an awesome, supernatural energy and a visual power undiminished by the passage of time. - (PF.1033)
