Painted with a vivid, lively style, this Mayan bowl depicts a procession of figures wearing elaborate, feathered headdresses. As with much of Mayan art, it is ambiguous about the distinction between the mortal and divine realms. Is this a worldly festival, with humans masked and costumed as gods? Or does it depict a parade of divinities in heaven? Painted in the sunset colors so beloved of the Maya, the draughtsmanship has a quick, impressionistic quality that adds to its charm. We can feel the hand of the artist at work with a sense of vitality and movement. HT. 13cm(5 1/8IN): DIAM. 19cm(7 1/2IN) - (PF.1414)
