 CULTURE: Colima ORIGIN: West Mexico AGE: Ca. 250 B. C. - 300 A. D. SIZE: 5" T all x 3 1/2" wide DESCRIPTION: A Leathery out of the ordinary seated figure...she is engaging and fetching! This compact granny is seated with her legs tucked under her short tunic. She has large coffee bean eyes and a tight fitting cap still retaining its red pigment. Her right arm is resting on her hip and her left arm is held up...perhaps in a greeting gesture. She has a long pronounced nose. Her upper "female parts" leave no doubt that she has not been to see a plastic surgeon! Such charming humor in a piece of this age can't help but to remind us that our ancestors were not all stolid farmers seeking only to survive. She will make you smile and I will miss her...but I just have too many artifacts to keep her...time for a new home!
