Vessel: Jaguar(?)

Vessel: Jaguar(?)

c. 1000–1550

Description

Artists of the Pataky style excelled in animal portrayals that typically combine a modeled head with a flat, boldly patterned vessel chamber, punned as the animal's body. The animals' meanings are unstudied, though it seems important that many strike human poses-creatures that combine human and animal traits often have mythic import.
