Lot 0114A
Pre-Columbian, West Mexico, Colima, ca. 300 BCE to 300 CE. Four finely handbuilt terracotta figures - parading in a processional - the three behind the lead player holding the shoulders of the gentleman in front of him. Each figure has a fanciful lobed and incised coiffure, is nude save ear ornaments, and stands upon the shared rectangular plinth. The leading man plays a flute, and all in the ensemble appear to be entranced by the music. Size: 5.5" L x 3" H (14 cm x 7.6 cm); 4" H (10.2 cm) on included custom stand.

Provenance: private Southern California, USA collection, acquired in the 1970s to mid-1980s
