Jaguar Vase

This is another of the pre-Columbian ceramics in the Pre-Columbian Gold Museum.  This is a tripod vase with a jaguar motif.   The creativity and skill of the indigenous culture is indeed impressive.  Most of the ceramics on display in the museum came from the Nicoya peninsula in northwest Costa Rica, where Tamarindo is located.

This week we have photos from the Galapagos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Unique! I'll have to do some research on the significance of the jaguar.

I am catching up on your posts from this museum and all of the pieces are just wonderful! I think the bat is my favorite.
