An excellent Quimbaya retablo figure from the Middle Cauca region of Colombia, ca. 1200 - 1400 AD. This seated male is 8" high and is posed with hands resting on the knees. He has the enigmatic facial expression characteristic of the type, with deeply incised grooves used to indicate jewelry or clothing. Nice example with strong mineral deposits.

Cf. Labbe "Colombia Before Columbus", page 74.
