Details: This lot consists of the antique Remojadas figure shown in the corresponding images.
This piece (c.600-850AD) depicts the head of a warrior, with asphalt black paint on the face and a spiked headdress. This Pre-Columbian sculpture was acquired by the consignor's parents on a tour of Mexico circa 1960 and is mounted on a black base.
Remojadas is a name applied to a culture, an archaeological site, as well as an artistic style that flourished on Mexico's Veracruz Gulf Coast from perhaps 100 BCE to 800 CE. The Remojadas culture is considered part of the larger Classic Veracruz culture.
Remojadas is particularly known for its pottery and its hollow ceramic figurines. Literally thousands of these expressive and diverse figurines have been unearthed, found across a wide variety of settings, including burials and middens. (Information courtesy of Wikipedia)
