Large Pre-Columbian TAIRONA Anthropomorphic Burial Urn
The Tairona culture existed between several hundred years BC and approximately 1500AD in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in what is now Colombia, South America, leaving a fine heritage of beautifully crafted objects, from pottery to fine gold sculpture. This urn has a nicely molded face and arms, on a globular body and raised neck, measuring approximately 10" high and 12" across, the neck just over 6" across. In good condition, with remnants of encrusted sand, a fine crack at the neck, one along the side, one on the base, and a chip at the back of the rim. The base has evidence of wear and mineral deposits. It sits slightly lopsided, and is more stable and upright if placed upon a ring of some kind. There is an old paper collection label on the interior neck, and is from a collection of pre-Columbian artifacts acquired before 1970
