This is a pre-Columbian terracotta figure from Central America. The figure is a woman with very large eyes, earrings and either a headdress or an elaborate hairdo. The figure has a beautiful all-over reddish hue and has had a repair made at the neck.
Circa before 1492.
Approximately 7” in height and 3-1/16” in width.
This is from an antiquities collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. MEJJX06 LACJJX3/11
7 (Very Fine): The figure has had an old repair to the neck and a small piece of the foot is missing.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
