An excellent Colima Palanquin scene from West Mexico, ca. 300 BC – 300 AD. This choice example is 5” high, 5-1/2” wide and depicts a ruler being carried by four attendants. He is seated inside a small hut mounted on a platform, which is representative of a throne and is indicative of his elite status. In excellent condition, with strong mineral encrustation.

Cf. von Winning “Anecdotal Sculpture of Ancient West Mexico”, page 88.
