Guatemala

Maya Enthroned Rattle Figure

500 AD to 800 AD

9 1/2″ tall by 6 1/2″ wide   

A rare Maya enthroned rattle figure from the Pacific Slope area of Guatemala. It is mold-made in a natural buff clay.

A ruler is depicted sitting on a fantastic throne that is sculpted with wings and carved with glyphs. The king has a large headdress, ear spools, pectoral, and decorated loincloth. His goatee is an unusual feature. 

There are remnants of white stucco in the low points and some Maya blue pigment on his left wrist. Rattles are present inside the piece and produced a wonderful sound.

This is a large and impressive example of a rare type. It is in amazing condition!

Ex Dr R Fernandez MD collection. Acquired in the 1940s.
