A marvelous Chorrera figural vessel from Ecuador, ca. 1200 – 200 BC. It is 8-1/4” long and depicts a prone figure mounted atop the rectangular chamber. The head is superbly detailed, with the chin resting on the hands. The chamber and top of the head have highly burnished orange slip, the face and body are unpolished. Rare example.

Cf. Valdez “Amerindian Signs”, page 48.
