A fine Maya Swimmer bowl features two nicely detailed figures representing the Hero Twins of Mayan mythology, depicting part of their journey through the Underworld of Xibalba. The highly burnished exterior also has a good rim band with well drawn glyphs and the piece has a beautifully decorated interior with central black sphere.
