Title
Yoke : U-shaped.
Description
The yoke, worn around the waist of a ball player, was used to hit or deflect a fast-moving rubber ball. They were probably made of animal skins and plant materials. Wearing a stone yoke does increase the ball's speed and the distance it travels. Stone yokes are found in elite burials and probably not used during a ballgame. The stone on this piece is scratched and has a few chips. However, the overall condition is good.

Teotihuacan incensario ...
MawM0286
Title
Teotihuacan incensario : stage type : hourglass form.
Description
Each incensario or censer is an individual work of art, no two are alike. They can be similar in form, like this modified stage-type censer. Some archaeologists believe this stage incensario represents the Teotihuacan temple and the individual inside the great Goddess. This female deity wears a butterfly headdress and a butterfly buccal plate (mask) in front of her nose and mouth, and holds two scepters made of branches. She is surrounded by eight yellow and red complex flower images and five yellow-crowned quetzal birds. All of these images indicate a goddess of fertility.
