Offering Bowl: Middle Classic

Ceramic bowls of this type, found in the Temple II complex of the Middle Classic Period, were used in the making of food offerings. Common  among the Seyathos Culture, this example – of Ephemerean manufacture – would have been quite familiar to its maker since this type of bowl  first appear in the Seyathos Valley a thousand years before the founding of Ephemera.  What make this example so remarkable is its copper applica- which incorporates what looks to be a brass bracelet!  This supports the theory that the Middle Classic craftsmen incorporated any metal  on hand into there often unique and playful designs.
