Casas Grandes Polychrome Pot With Face - PF.0865 Origin: Casas Grandes, Mexico Circa: 1160
AD Dimensions:4.75" (12.1cm) high Collection: Pre-Columbian Style: Casas Grandes Medium: Terracotta
This intriguing pot acts like a window into the
realm of the spirits. The haunting face seems
part human, part demon with a mouth that
appears at once to be grinning and snarling.
Perhaps it will react to us depending upon
whether good or evil is in our own hearts. The
pot must once have contained something very
precious to be guarded by such a being.
