Latin America, Mexico, Spanish Colonial, ca. 1800 to 1900 CE. A small oil on tin retablo contained within a tin-box frame depicting San Francisco de Paula.

Pre-Columbian, Colombia, Magdalena River area, Moskito style, ca. 990-1150 CE. Most burial urns of the lower Magdalena River region in northern Colombia feature figural portraits of male figures sitting on a low bench. More often than not birds embellish the sides of the urn rather than the top of the lid. Hence this lid with a totemic or symbolic bird figure sitting atop the lid with outspread wings and abstract decoration incised on its breast, is a somewhat unusual example...

Northern Coast, Peru, Chimu, ca. 1000 to 1300 CE. This Andean textile is composed of wool from alpaca or llama and cotton dyed with natural dyes that have retained their vibrant hues, mainly red, rose, and brown. Its fine condition is most likely attributed to the dry conditions of the Andes and protection from the region's sunlight. The composition consists of longitudinal panels of nested profiled birds delineated with their characteristic beaks and tails alternating with rich brown panels. ...

Pre-Columbian, Mexico, Guanajuato Valley, ca. 300-200 BCE. The breadth of the Chupicuaro ceramic tradition never ceases to amaze us. The indigenous of this culture used a vivid palette and bold patterns that set their ceramics apart. While these artists drew upon the traditions of the Colima, Jalisco, and Nayarit cultures of West Mexico, they experimented with forms and pigments and ultimately created an artform that inspired much of the pottery of the American Southwest. This example possesses ...

Pre-Columbian, West Mexico, Nayarit, Chinesco style, ca. 100 to 300 CE. This is a colorful, pensive pottery figure in the "Chinesco" style, so-called by early collectors because they felt that this class of figures looked Chinese. These figures are characterized by painted decoration and smooth burnished surfaces. The figure sits with his knees raised, arms linked and leaning on them. His face is serious, with markings that may represent tattoos or scarification; he wears a nose ring and a simpl...

Pre-Columbian, Peru, ca. 1250 to 1500 CE. This is an interesting assemblage of pre-Columbian artifacts. The poncho itself, including the fringe along bottom, is ancient, probably Chancay from Peru's North Coast. The gold over silver discs are also ancient, Chimu or Inca, but were added to the poncho in more modern times. The embroidered figures, while in the Pre-Columbian style, are modern additions, probably added in the early 20th century. When combined, they display beautifully. Size of p...
