This is an incredible, authentic, Pre-Columbian jaguar pottery vessel. Dating back to 800-1200BCE, this vessel was crafted in the Greater Nicoya region of Costa Rica.
This pot has a jaguar head protruding from an illustrated depiction of its body. Jaguars, being the apex-predators of their region, were a symbol of both physical and spiritual power. Oftentimes these depictions were intended to represent a shaman taking on their animal forms.
It measures 13.5" tall and 8.75" diameter. We can ship our ancient artifacts worldwide!
