Because of the size there is an immense amount of etching on the native dark mineral side of the vessel. The Maya figure carrying the memory of the ancestors is surrounded by exquisite geometric and night sky etching. The jade hue set into the etchings after firing are a color accent that brings the narrative to life.
Dynamic agua swirl on the burnished background of the turtle side of the urn. Plethora of sea turtle species including the ancient giant Leatherback. Really special textured reef with dazzling color detail.
Significant size and extraordinarily decorated urn.
