This amazing small Nicoya figure comes from Costa Rica and measures 5" in height. She dates C.A. 500 A.D. - 1000A.D. She represents a masterfully modeled and very rare birthing scene. She is painted in colors of jet black and reddish orange over a tan background. The attributes of female sexuality and pregnancy are shown by a distended abdomen and artfully and tastefully depicted.The piece is in superb condition with no repairs or overpaint. Excellent mineral deposits attest to her great age. These fertility scenes are rarely if ever depicted in Nicoya art.
