Pre-Columbian, Ecuador, Manabi Province, Jama Coaque culture, ca. 500 BCE. An endearing sculptural depiction of a mother nursing her child from the Jamacoaque culture of ancient Ecuador. The mold-made figural pair is painted with hues of red, green, and orange. The mother is elaborately adorned with an array of ornaments - a double-stranded beaded pectoral, four-stranded bracelets, and five-stranded beaded anklets, round ear ornaments, and a nose ring. She dons a skirt; however, her breasts are revealed. A lovely piece representing motherly love. Size: 4.125" W x 5" H (10.5 cm x 12.7 cm)

Condition: Chip to rim of jar in two places, else excellent with vibrant paint

Provenance: Ex-W. Jones collection
