Description: Wood. Pre-Columbian America, Inca, approx. around 1500

Rare piece, on which even the otherwise metallic bands are also carved in wood. Tall, upswinging cup form, mouth on one side thicker from where the angular, stylized head of a jaguar arises. Also the legs are executed, protruding entirely flat and angular, the long horizontally tapering tail forms a right angle. Especially interesting and rich are the age-related characteristics of weathering and patina; the image of handcrafted carving with a knife is still well preserved and recognizable.
HEIGHT 19,3 CM, DM 12,8 CM
Former collection of B. Rüdiger, Konstanz on Bodensee, acquired around 1985

The vessel is illustrated in "Book B6-106"
