Seated Lord with Removable Headdress: Stool


Did You Know?

It is estimated that some 20,000 people were buried on the tiny island of Jaina over a 500-year period.


The major Maya grave offerings on Jaina Island were ceramic figurines that depict deities and humans in a variety of roles. The stool belongs to a seated figure who represents a male, perhaps another warrior, who wears a huge zoomorphic headdress.
  • The figurine was accessioned into the collection of the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute (MWPI) in Utica, New York in 1968 (accession number 68.76). The MWPI deaccessioned the vessel in 2000, when it entered a private collection in the U.S. The results of the Art Loss Register search are pending.
