Large Colima Female Figure, Pre-Columbian West Mexico
SOLD - Thank You

This large Colima female figure dates to Circa 200 B.C. 200 A.D., and comes from the ancient Colima region of West Mexico. Because of her combined height and width she has a substantial presence, measuring approximately 6 3/4 tall by about 6 wide. She is depicted as a seated female with her hands resting on her abdomen. She is shown adorned with large ear spools, upper arm bands, a decorative cap, and wearing a skirt with a belt or sash at the waist. A long ponytail or decorative element extends from the back of her neck forward across her chest to her lap.

Condition: There is a re-glued ancient break at the waist, with minor loss to part of the belt at the back, and loss to the front part of her right upper arm bands. Otherwise, expected minor loss, abrasions, chips, weathering and wear, with root marks and heavy mineral and sediment deposits remaining.

Provenance: Former California, USA private collection.
