Chinesco Figure

A lovely Chinesco figure from Nayarit, West Mexico, ca. 50 BC - 200 AD. This seated female is 8-1/4" high and is depicted with legs spread and diminutive arms held to her waist. The legs are elaborately decorated and textile panels adorn her chest and back. Her face shows extensive décor and much of the orange wash once covering the white slip still remains. Intact, with just minor losses to the ears.
