Small Colima Dog Pot

$ 85.00

This dog-themed pot is inspired by an archeological piece depicting a "Colima dog," a Mesoamerican domesticated animal that was shorter and thicker than the Aztec xoloescuincle dogs that still exist today. These short, pot-bellied effigies have been found in shaft tombs throughout the southern state of Colima, hence their name. The original piece can be found at Mexico's national Anthropology Museum. This ceramic version is crafted by the Angel Ceron Artisan Association.
