Ceremonial platter

The front is engraved with a mythological scene with the mixing of jaguar faces, stylized birds and scrolls. These platters are traditionally realized in stone. The choice of bone is exceptional. It allowed the artist to model delicately the volumes of each decorative element resulting in a work of fine quality.
