Antique Pre-Columbian Jalisco Polychrome Ceramic Female Figure
Rare authentic antique pre-Columbian protoclassic circa 200 B.C.-200 A.D. very finely sculpted Jalisco polychrome ceramic figure depicting a standing female with large rounded proportions overall. She is standing on large arched feet, her foreshortened arms outstretched, voluminous breasts and broad shoulders adorned with a long necklace shell pendant. Painted overall in white buff paint.
CONDITION: In good condition considering its age, minor loss of polychrome, crack in the left arm, but consistent with age and otherwise in good condition. All of this is an aspect from an ancient pottery figure which is over 1800 years old.
PROVENANCES: The figure comes from an Old Canadian Collection of Pre-Columbian art with its paper label inventory numbering the back and is in its original condition. The custom mounted wood stand with brass roped wire around the neck for security was added from the 1940s.
