**First Time At Auction**

Pre-Columbian, West Mexico, Jalisco, ca. 300 BCE to 300 CE. A petite hand-built terracotta seated figure with a flat base and curled nubbin-shaped legs, a flat back, and sinuous arms grasping at the temples of a bulbous head. Given the composition, this statuette was a personal idol meant to alleviate chronic headaches. Two drilled perforation holes in the chest indicates this was perhaps an amulet worn on a constant basis. The figure boasts an exterior surface of red-orange pigment and presents a classic Jalisco appearance. Size: 2.45" H (6.2 cm).
