A Nacurutu, (South American Great Horned Owl) from the UPAE 1989 2v 'Archaeology' set.
Ceramic statue(?) on a 1989 UPAE stamp. Any one have information?
Thank you Michael! This stamp is from the 2v 'Pre-Colombian Carvings', and the cachet indicates that it forms part of the UPAE set? This Mimbres (1150-1350) wooden lightening deity was found in a cache. The zigzags are interpreted as lightening and rain, the checks as clouds and face the night sky. The cachet depicts Mesa Verde, could this be where the cache was found?
