CULTURE: Nayarit ORIGIN: West Mexico AGE: Ca. 300 B. C. - 400 A. D. SIZE: 5 3/4" in height by 3" in width DESCRIPTION: A solid molded pottery figure sitting in the classic Nayarit stance with legs akimbo. He has deeply incised eyes and mouth. He is wearing ear spools and a tightly fitting rounded cap. His arms are resting on his waist. Stripes of the original black pigment are still evident on his back. He is heavily coated with mineral deposits which attest to his great antiquity. A fine addition to the collector who specializes in small to medium sized artifacts!
