Nayarit, shaft-tomb culture, West-Mexico, 200 BCE - 200 CE

This seated male figurine balances between the Nayarit San-Sebastian-Red-Style and the Nayarit Chinesco (sub)styles. Since these styles often overlap, many figurines defy categorization and therefore become even more interesting.
Present figurine, with its gazing expression and its high-spirited hands-on-knees position, radiates great serenity. It has clearly lidded eyes, well-incised, as are the mouth and the particular hairdress. Strong nose.
Adorned with bracelets, multiple earrings, necklace, belt and scarifications.
Overall painted earthenware in red slip (burnished). Hollow. 2.5cm gap on top of the head.


Condition: near choice. Presence of minor chips and scratches overall; aged planes of fracture (hairdress, belt); stable crack in right arm; good deposits and manganese bloomings. Restorations: head reattached; chip under left side mouth filled up (ca1cm²), reconstruction upper band (partly) and lower band (fully) of right arm bracelet. Fair RP would be 1200/1400 EUR.

In my private collection for more than 20 years. Acquired through auction.

Sorry, no shipping outside Europe (BpostInternational-track&trace).

No export permit needed for shipment between EU countries. Seller guarantees having acquired this lot by legal means and having the proper permits. Seller will inform buyer if acquiring the proper permits and shipping the lot takes more than a few days.
