Tairona Zoomorphic Vessel

This zoomorphic effigy vessel is made of fine brown-ware. Its execution in form is sharp and well defined. Four mammiform legs support an open winged bat in flight.

Above his head, his front arms hold an oversized adornment by use of a crosspiece. Tail is elevated and serves as an additional spout.

This ceramic style is no doubt one of the finest expressions of Tairona art.
