Jaina Ceramic Efiigy Whistle of a Seated Woman(33 views)
Description: This mold made whistle depicts a lady with a tatooed face, holding her hand to her breast. Post-fire Maya blue pigment outlines the edge of her huipil, which was knotted on the upper right side of her chest. Mold made figurines are thought to be later than solid hand modeled examples. Jaina Island, off the coast of Yucatan, was a cemetery for high-ranking nobles from the mainland.
