This figure is a flat, pottery warrior statue from the Colima culture in the area of Western Mexico, Tecoman and coastal area, ca. 200 BCE - 200 CE. The style of this unslipped buff figurine is typical of Tecoman and the coastal area. It blends the typical coffee-bean eyes and facial features with a plate-flat body and string arms. The Colima would have placed such a warrior with his characteristic helmet with ear flaps, ornamented breechcloth, and weapon swung over his shoulder in a tomb either to protect or resemble the deceased. Custom, museum-quality stand. 8 1/2"T x 4-1/4"W 

Provenance: Ex-Adeon Gallery, Chicago, IL, acquired prior to 1970.
