Precolumbian pottery stamp/Aztec, 1400 A.D.

Period: 14th century AD

Culture: Aztec

Dimensions: 30 x 45 x 23 mm

Material: Ceramic

Condition: Good, one corner broken.

Stamps by Aztec probably were used primarily with paint as body decoration or to decorate clothing.

When attending festivals, the Aztecs wore face-paint and probably used small pottery stamps such as this to imprint patterns on their cheeks or other body parts.

There are geometric and abstract motives, people, monkeys and eagles, stylized versions of Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent, and of other strange figures who may be gods or heroes.

This stamp is handmade showing stylized walking human figure
