This large Jalisco shaman figure stands 13 1/2" in height and comes from Western Mexico Ca. 300 B.C. -200 A.D. It is in as found condition with very little of the original red/orange slip remaining. The base color is a soft orange/buff color. The shaman has a slightly opened mouth with teeth showing, ritual scarification or tatooing on the shoulders, and a circular beaded necklace. The face has a relaxed serene countenance with large almond shaped eyes and a slightly upturned grin. It is intact and has never been broken or repaired. He has great visual appeal even without the bright red glaze which appeals to many collectors. I prefer fine aesthetic form over color.
