Pre-Columbian, Valley of Mexico, Tlatilco, ca. 1200 to 800 BCE. A wonderful pottery 'pretty lady' figure from this very early Pre-Columbian culture. Clearly a fertility idol with ample hips suggestive of child bearing, attenuated arms, and small perky breasts. Her face is elongated with slanted, coffee-bean-shaped eyes, drooping ears that are partially pierced, and a tall headdress that is meticulously detailed with bulb-shaped ornamentation. The figure is finely painted with natural pigments in yellow - adorning the face and neck - and red embellishing the eyes, arms, necklace, and headdress. Custom museum-quality display stand included. Size: 2.5" W x 6.25" H (6.4 cm x 15.9 cm); 6.625" H (16.8 cm) on included custom stand.
Provenance: private Hawaii, USA collection; ex-private T. Misenhimer collection, Hollywood, California, USA, famous Hollywood film producer
