Another Piece of Pottery

If you have read this blog for any length of time, you know that I am a sucker for Mexican handicrafts.  I was downtown in a rather nice handicraft shop located near the National Museum of Art.  I had just purchased a small gift for someone back home when I saw this piece of pottery on the shelf... 

I have seen pieces like this a few times.  In fact, earlier on this trip, I wrote that I had seen a piece similar to this, but I didn't buy it because I didn't want to carry it around with me all day.

The clay pot, which is from the state of Chiapas, has jaguars all around it.  The heads are three-dimensional, and the tails serve as handles.  This one was slightly smaller than the one I had seen before.  I was done with my sightseeing for the day, and from here I was going to head back to the apartment.  So, why not?  I bought it! 


  1. Love it! Great choice. I have never seen that work in yellow!

    1. I've only seen something like this perhaps three times before. Those have always been in yellow or orange.
