This finely molded and highly detailed pink/buff figural whistle of a priestess or noblewoman measures 5" in height by 2 3/4" in width and comes from Jaina Island, Yucatan, Mexico and dates Ca. 600 - 900 A.D. She is intact including the interior rattles. She proudly stands wearing large ear spools, a semi-circular multi-level headpiece, and a double square beaded necklace. She is clutching a circular medallion in both hands at chest level with long ribbon shapes draping down the front. Traces of the original white Maya pigment still remain. An excellent example of a Jaina treasure at an unbeatable price. Ex. Private New York collection.
