Photographer's Note

This piece is typical in its unusual shape and high polish of the Tarascans' pottery. These people were the Aztecs' neighbours, equally warlike and bent on conquest. The Aztecs tried twice to invade their lands but were unsuccessful.

You were correct if you realized that this vessel symbolizes fertility.
