Maya_Poison_Jar.jpg
Pre-Columbian, Guatemala, Maya Late Classic Period (ca. 550-900 CE) Poison Jar11 viewsA fantastic example of a molded "poison jar" depicting a seated scribe on either side of its flattened body in an inset disc. Each decorated side is colored with red cinnabar pigment in the lower profile areas. The scribe has a speech sign emerging from his mouth, and wears a long headdress, necklace, and spooled earring. Shown in profile, the figure is expertly molded to fit within the disc border. The undecorated sides have raised ridges that lead upward to the flared spout. Scribes played a vital role in the Mayan world, and they were minor royalty, with the ability to read and write. They had the power to immortalize a king or queen through their writing, documenting battles, religious favor, and political skill.

Around the turkey motif are two wide black rings and then a circle of repeated pseudo-glyphs that seem to be human heads. These are also bordered by two wide black rings that separate the base of the bowl from the sides. Around the flared sides of the bowl's interior are repeated motifs of two beings in coitus wearing huge, matching feathered headdresses. They are in groups of two separated by six vertical black bands, perhaps also representing feathers.

This is one of the finer examples of Copador painting I have seen, and the figures painted around the center are rich in detail and seem to include monkeys, gods, kings, and queens, each unique, alongside decapitated heads and well-drawn furniture.

Mayan_Territories_Rattle-Legged_Tripod_Plate.jpg
Pre-Columbian, Southern Mexico and Northern Central America, Mayan Territories, Late Classic (ca. 550-900 CE) Rattle-Legged Tripod Plate8 viewsA classic example of a rattle-legged tripod plate from the Mayan period, with a band of glyphs around the flared rim and a lordly figure - possibly a scribe - depicted in tondo. The plate stands on tall, open legs with small clay balls inside of each to create a rattling sound. The seated figure has a headdress of very long, grey and orange feathers, and sits with his legs crossed, one foot up on his knee, leaning on one arm and reaching forward with the other as if to paint the sides of the bowl. Beside/underneath him is a basket containing what looks like eggs but could be any number of objects. The figure is painted with red, black, orange, and the rarer grey pigment. Scribes played a vital role in the Mayan world, and they were minor royalty, with the ability to read and write. They had the power to immortalize a king or queen through their writing, documenting battles, religious favor, and political skill.

This reverse die used for this coin was originally used to strike the previous issue, Price 1753, with vertical barley grain below the throne. Here one can see the remnant of the barley grain after an attempt was made to erase it in the die. Moreover, this coin was struck from the same obverse die as the plate coin for Price 1753.
