In the shape of a cat, standing. Short wide vessel neck on cat's back. Painted with red-ringed, white spots.
Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-zoomorphic body, cylindrical neck, missing rim, no handles, and a footed base. The vessel is shaped like a jaguar with painted spots on the body in red and white. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange and gray in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2110."
