Chupícuaro is a late Pre-Classic archaeological culture located in west central Mexico. It was a major ceramic center, recognized as one of the best in Mesoamerica, and best known for its bold polychrome ceramics like this polychrome decorated pottery bowl. The example is made of a brown clay, moderately fired and then burnished. It features a face, the nose, and mouth in raised relief on the rim and is surrounded by a polychrome geometric motif.

Exhibited: Marjorie Barrick Museum, University of Nevada, Los Vegas during the 1980s.

Condition: Scattered areas of mineral deposits on the surface, the bowl is intact and in excellent condition overall. A nice example.
