Lot 1181. An Important Pre-Columbian Mayan Bowl, ca. 600-700 AD

Pre-Columbian Objets Offered by Aspire Auctions, Inc.

Pre-Columbian antiquities, from an old US collection are a feature of the current online auction. One such item is a small bowl, purchased in 1968 from the collection of Lee Moore of Miami, FL. This piece, in fantastic condition despite dating back to roughly 700 AD, still cleanly maintains the mysterious allure provided by the Mayan faces and complex geometric patterns painted around its body. Complementing this is a terracotta tapir, purchased in 1970 form the collection of E. Vargas Alfaro. The serene expression of this jungle mammal appears unperturbed after several centuries; only its feet appear to have been restored. There is also an Incensario, of Classic Veracruz, ca. 600-800 AD, a Remojadas standing figure, Huetar Culture, Mayan and Archaic Period items that will be a highlight of any collection.
The bidding on this auction started September 17th, 2010. Bids are online only; lots close the following week. Aspire will offer a gallery preview from September 17th - 22nd; with in-person hours from 11 am - 7 pm except Sundays.
