The Mayan Golden Age
Tomorrow, this striking vase will appear at auction with @Giquello&Associès. Painted in red ochre, the ceramic is from the Late Classical period (600-900). In a style that was common at the time in the Guatemalan region of Petén bordering Belize, we can recognize three elaborately stylized birds. The cormorants dry their wings after fishing in the Caribbean Sea. Chemical analysis confirms that the vase was produced near the archaeological site of Holmul.
Originally, the two vases belonged to the collection of the textile industrialist James Morrison (1789-1857) and then to his descendants. The material from which the vases are made – porphyry – is a very hard stone. Since antiquity, it has been mined from the Abu Dokhan Jebel quarries near the Red Sea in Egypt. Across Europe, the vases were highly valued by aristocracy and princely courts. Louis XIV, Richelieu and Mazarin, for instance, brought them to the French court.
