This little jar is a beautiful example of Mesoamerican pottery, decorated with red and white slip clay in the style of Chupícuaro ware. The olla vessel has a globular body with a rounded base, constricted neck, and slightly flared lip. The exterior is decorated with a diamond pattern around the body and vertical stripes along the neck. Smoke residue from firing darken the exterior and add beautiful asymmetry to the geometric decoration. Aged with a rich patina and pitted wear, this petite olla is an exquisite example of Pre-Columbian artistry.
