This skillfully molded and and boldly decorated Ramos polychrome female figure comes from Northern Mexico and dates Ca. 1250 A.D. -1450 A. D. She measures 9 1/2" in height and is in a sitting position with legs outfront.The body of the vessel is a soft tan color with design elements painted in jet black, red, and brown. There are circular medallions on her back along with stylized elements resembling hands as well as woven mat design on her extended legs. Her face is wonderfully expressive with almond shaped eyes and long black lashes. She is in as found pristine condition with no overpaint.One miniscule pressure crack has been professionally stabilized. The photos really do not do her justice. An effigy of this quality is a true rarity in today's Pre-Columbian market and presents an opportunity not to be missed.
