Object Description
Round porcelain plate with dark green mottled edges and a white center in the background. Over this background is an image of four abstracted Latin American-style native heads. There is one head on the right side with a blue and red headdress, and three heads on the left. Two are less detailed in green, with a third head in brown underneath them (the three heads on the left side are stacked on top of each other like a totem pole). There is a black and white speckled glaze on the back of the plate.
