MAYAN POLYCHROME BOWL
LATE CLASSIC, CA. A.D. 550-950
With inward-curving sides depicting five seated human figures, each crosslegged and wearing a tapir's head as mask, two pairs of figures gesticulating in an animated fashion, each with a jar before them, probably filled with hallucinogens, one character holds a small drinking cup, each clothed in turbans, jewelry and sashed loincloths with a dotted pattern created by finger painting, the rim encircled with glyphs representing "place markers", painted in shades of orange and black against a cream ground.
