A ceramic figure painted with natural asphalt from Veracruz, Mexico, from the Early Classic Period (A.D. 200500), is one of the more than 2,800 Precolumbian artifacts in the William P. Palmer III Collection in the Hudson Museum at the University of Maine.

The Palmer Collection is among the largest and most important in the United States. It provides new and valuable insights into how such spectacular ceramic figurines were made, who made them and how they were used.
