Guest Book
A beautifully sculpted Ameca figure from Jalisco, West Mexico, ca. 200 BC – 350 AD. This elaborately painted female is 8” high and is posed kneeling, with the legs tucked underneath. She is carrying a large vessel, strapped to her head with a tump line and supported with one hand. She is adorned with painted necklaces and has ritual tattoos on her breasts and chin. An excellent example of the type, with vivid paint and good mineral deposits.

Cf. Leyenaar “Von Kuste Zu Kuste”, page 234.
