Pre-Columbian, Northern Mexico, Casas Grandes, ca. 1100 to 1200 CE. A delightful coil-made and hand-painted pottery vessel of figural form, all enveloped in beige slip beneath red and black decoration. Sitting upon a round yet stable base, the jar presents a bulbous body an anthropomorphic head with coffee bean-shaped eyes, a pointed nose, an open mouth, and petite ears. The flat-topped head opens at the back to form the rim of the vessel. Mesmerizing geometric, nested, and spiraling patterns adorn the exterior surface.
