Culture: Colima Origin: West Mexico Age: Ca. 300 B.C. - 300 A. D. Size: 5" in height by 2 1/2" in width Description: This compact smiling figure retains the high red burnish so often missing from pieces of the period. He is standing upright and is nude except for his huge ear ornaments and a tall headpiece with a wide band supporting what is most likely a stylized bird. He exudes joy and contentment and can't help but bring a smile to your face.
