This Nicoya piece is exceptional in all ways. The standing female is from Costa Rica and dates Ca. 500-800 A.D. She is of the Nicoya-Galo style and shows strong Maya influence. She is resist decorated with Guanacaste-Nicoya colors of yellow, red, orange, cream, maroon, and black. She stands 8" in height and is highly decorated with geometric motifs and is wearing ear spools and a cap. Pieces of this quality are becoming quite rare.
