CULTURE: Nayarit ORIGIN: West Mexico AGE: Ca. 100 B. C. - 250 A. D. SIZE: 4 1/2" in height by 3 1/2" in width DESCRIPTION: An appealing squat rotund figure. He is standing on short truncated legs and has his arms raised and clasped behind his head. He has deeply incised eyes and mouth and incisions around his ears which may symbolize ear ornamentation. He has a slightly perplexed expression on his face. He is one of those small figures that makes you smile when you see him. There are numerous mineral deposits attesting to his great antiquity. A great little piece to round out a collection.
