Tripod Vase


Description Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The tripod form and painted decoration of this vessel are characteristic of the ancient central Mexican city of Teotihucana, while the ceramic ware and carved scrollwork are similar to ceramics from Veracruz. A mythical blue jaguar climbs upward, holding a dripping cloud motif in his right paw. Recent studies have shown that this vessel was extensively reconstructed in the 20th century.
