Nayarit Ballplayer

A wonderful Nayarit figure from West Mexico, 200 BC 300 AD. This beautifully detailed Ixtlan del Rio effigy is 11-1/2 high and depicts a seated ballplayer holding the game ball in his right hand. He is wearing the typical belt and is adorned with a simple headdress and the complex ear ornaments characteristic of the type. Strong paint shows textured clothing even through the extensive mineral deposits. A great example of a highly coveted type, with just a small restoration.
