This beautiful Mayan Polychrome offering rattle leg plate measures 13 1/8" diameter by 3" tall. The offering plate has a kill hole in the center along with three rattle legs. The plate has paint surface wear from use on the face and one of the rattle legs has been re-assembled no other condition issues. The face has a Lord or Deity holding what could be a feather broom? I purchased the plate from a dealer who acquired it from the estate of a National Geographic's photographer. The name was not supplied. Unfortunately there is no provenance that comes with the piece. I will supply a Statement of release capturing all details.
