Amusing Chupicuaro Pottery Pregnant Figure

Pre-Columbian, Western Mexico, Chupicuaro, ca. 500 BCE to 300 CE. An intriguing figure with very little decoration. Instead it is a nice study of a pregnant woman's physique. She stands with her hands on her ample womb, her body thrust forward. A pale red line painted on the upper body may suggest a tattoo in a geometric form from the shoulder, between the breasts, and around the stomach; a deep line incised in the head may indicate a medical condition or a scar. Size: 3.55" W x 5.5" H (9 cm x 14 cm)

Condition: Intact, with much remaining pigment

Provenance: Ex-private , San Francisco, CA Collection
