LAS BOCAS, EARLY PRECLASSIC, CA. 1200-900 B.C.
The finely modeled tecomate of hemispherical form of thin and even section with circular opening covered overall in creamy kaolin slip; the interior with remains of cinnabar.
Las Bocas potters exercised ceramic art with great skill. Tecomates, a prime example, were modeled with thin walls into a harmonious form.
