Manteņo Standing Incensario
A nicely made Manteņo Incensario. Standing on a pedestal wearing a wide 6.75" dia. brim hat and large earplugs. Excellent facial features. Used for ceremonial purposes. Brown coloring shows that this piece was subjected in a more controlled firing. Most Manteņo artifacts are black in color due to it's lack of oxygen. Intentionally broken during rituals. Re-assembled and painted over break lines. Measures 15.5". Manabi, Ecuador 700-1550AD. Impressive piece.
