LARGE MINT CHACO DONUT BIRD EFFIGY C. 1100AD ANASAZI

This wonderful and quite rare "donut" duck effigy measures 7 inches long, 6.25 inches tall and 6 inches wide at the breast. The "donut" descriptor comes from the interior hole which goes completely through the center of the effigy. The reason for this design element is unknown and subject to much discussion and conjecturer. It should be noted though that very similar designs are found in Mayan pieces excavated in the Mexico and Guatemala areas. The exterior exhibits a classic Chaco "pennant" design and extremely fine line-work; the entire piece is in "as found" condition and has no breakage, restoration or addition of any paint. Such examples are quite rare and generally found only in the most advanced collections.

Additional details are available upon request.
