Lot 0064E
Pre-Columbian, West Mexico, Jalisco, ca. 200 BCE to 200 CE. A tripod redware seated figure with a meticulously incised coiffure, nicely modeled facial features, and large ear ornaments, assuming a pose that is humorously akin to that of August Rodin's masterpiece "The Thinker" (1902). How wonderfully universal is this pensive, hand-to-chin gesture that somehow captivated both the renowned French sculptor and the Pre-Columbian artist who created this piece! Simply marvelous! Size: 5" W x 8.125" H (12.7 cm x 20.6 cm)
