118: A Pre-Columbian Tumaco La Tolita Effigy Mold
Ecuador, Ca. 200 BC to AD. A ceramic mold of a votive mask; his face is lovely with half moon eyes, a wrinkle pattern to express his age, a nose with ornament and teeth slightly bared. Mold measures 4” H x 5-1/4”W + impression + custom mounted (11” x 4-1/2” base width). Very fine example custom mounted with a modern mold next to it.
Provenance: Ex New York Collector.
