It presents certain common characteristics: the pots are wheel-made and painted and generally employ simple shapes; the basic decorative elements are lineal, floral, or vegetal, painted in dark red or maroon on a lighter red or buff background; the human figure was employed only in the most developed stages, when designs borrowed from the animal world were also used.
