File:Funerary Urn from Oaxaca.jpg


Funerary urn from Oaxaca. Estimated to originate from Period III (AD 300- 650).

Although listed in the display case and on the original catalogue page as a "bat god" (even though it does not have wings), the online "virtual hall" lists this urn as a "jaguar".

Compare with this clay jaguar, also from Oaxaca.
