Caption:  Maya Fish

Description:  Maya. clay.height 17.7 cm. Pair of hollow fish. If held in the hand, they create the glyph tzak To manifest, to bring forth. T714. Comment from Oswaldo Chinchilla. While the people who created them may have spoken a maya language, the fact is they would belong better in the "Escuintla" section. Furthermore, the reference to T714 might also be out of place, since Lowland Maya writing was not used in Classic period Escuintla
