Description
The artist of this intriguing object has gracefully crafted a vegetable producing a timeless work of art. This vegetable is most probably a pumpkin symbolically representing an item used in rituals and on ceremonial occasions associated with agriculture. We wonder if this was made for the deity of agriculture to be used as an offering, or if it was used in prayer asking for good crops. This striking masterpiece of Mayan art communicates powerfully with the modern world, while at the same time transmitting the refined artistic life on the ancient Mayan in all its fascinating detail. - (PF.3459)
