An Urn from a Zapotec Tomb at Atzompa, Oaxaca

Here's a recently discovered funerary urn from a tomb at Atzompa, a site adjacent to Monte Alban and outside the town of Atzompa which is famous for its ceramics today. The urn is colored red. From around 700 of the current era. Beautiful. The Zapotecs created amazing urns to bury with their elite. This is an example. Valley of Oaxaca.
