Jaguar Sculpture
Amatenango del Valle, Chiapas
clay, pigment
14.5" high x 9" diameter

This Jaguar sculpture is from the small Tzeltal village of Amatenango del Valle in central Chiapas. This village is renowned for its beautifully decorated pottery. The clay pieces are done in the traditional way, not fired in an oven, but over an open fire outdoors, and then hand-painted without polish or glaze.
