Colima Bed Figure

An excellent Colima bed figure from West Mexico, ca. 300 BC – 300 AD. It is 3-5/8” long and depicts a female tied to a funerary pallet. She is adorned with a simple headdress and ear ornaments, her head is resting on a cushion. These anecdotal figures represent women who died in childbirth. In excellent condition, with strong dendrites.

Cf. von Winning “Anecdotal Sculpture of Ancient West Mexico”, page 91.
