Post Lot Text
PANAMANIAN BROWNWARE PEDESTAL BOWL, CONTE STYLE
CA. A.D. 500-800
On flaring pedestal foot with sharply carinated bowl distinguished by the stylized janiform flute players, each musician in a trance-like state, chin jutting forward, stylized arms holding the flute to the mouth, the shoulders curving into the headdress framing the top of the head; the burnished surface in deep chocolate-reddish brown.
Such Panamanian ceramics are closely affiliated with both the Smoked ware ceramics of Sitio Conte and the Tairona of nearby Colombia.
