Pre-Columbian, late Mayan to early Toltec, Ca 800 to 1100 CE. Wonderfully expressive pottery sculpture of a seated corn goddess. She sits legs crossed, hands to her feet, wearing corn symbols on her upper arms, large ear spools and nose ring, pointed cap, with liberal tattooing on her shoulder and breasts. Interestingly, there is an incised monkey on the backside of this wonderful pottery! Size: 9"H (23 cm).
