You are taking into consideration an authentic Mayan bowl, referred to as a “lak,” which used to be utilized by the high-ranking elite members (“ahau” or “ahaw”) of Mayan city-states as a receptacle for the burnt papers impregnated with their blood. The realization used to be that the smoke would upward thrust to the heavens and serve to determine the bond/relationship between the ruler making the sacrifice and the Gods. This actual bowl belongs to the period most often {referred to as|called} “classic” Mayan, dating to circa three hundred-800AD. It comes, most definitely, from the Peten. It’s in superb condition for its age, with considerable root marking, best very minor lack of pigment or pitting of the skin. A stable crack, reaching into the ground will also be seen within the photos. No restoration or repainting in anyway. It measures slightly below 8 inches in diameter and sits 3 inches in height (19cm X 7.5cm). The design shows two complex serpent-like figures (the “cauac” monster?), which smoke-like emanations. A line of vertical glyphs will also be seen in an instant at the back of every of the 2 serpent-heads. Shipping and handling in america is $25; out of the country will vary. As with the whole lot I sell, authenticity is absolutely guaranteed. Please note; I sell and ship all over the world. (Selling on eBay for more than 18 years – please see my feedback.)
