This round Manteño ceramic lid has a raised-relief zoomorphic design that curves around the prominent hollow handle. The animal is stylized, with a long snout filled with many teeth, pointed ears, elongated body, curly tail, and feet or paws. This is not a stamp seal since the design is on the same side as the handle.
