Aztec suiban?



This ceramic square brazier found in Toluca Valley of central Mexico is dated between 1250 and 1521. Doesn’t it strike you as a suiban or a bonsai pot? In fact, some of the older Chinese bonsai pots were originally braziers with drainage holes drilled in them at a later date. Saw it at the Aztec exhibition in Sydney this month.
