This black vessel is in the form of an upward-facing duck with the opening of the bill functioning as the opening of the vessel. The incised details contain red pigment. Ducks in Mesoamerican art often represent creatures associated with wind, as well as serving as special creatures who operated in air, on earth, and underwater.
