Imagine an ancient culture ruled by chieftains and served by the people. Organized armies, a powerful religion and the daily joys and sorrows that invariably make up the lives of the people from Nayarit. One glance at this beautiful bowl tells us these are not savage people who lived like primitive man. This bowl is nearly flawless. This is definitely the work of a skilled craftsman, who might have passed this bowl on to a priest to make offerings to the gods. Its power is magical, its size benefiting such an important purpose as a religious ceremony leads us to believe that the gods were indeed pacified. - (PF.2773)
