Pre-Columbian Tlatilco Pre-Classic Pottery Figure

Pre-Columbian, Valley of Mexico, Tlatilco, ca. 1250 to 800 BCE. A fine example of a "pretty lady" in solid buff clay; her visage characteristically abstract with double-pierced eyes, open mouth, and protruding nose; her body presenting attenuated arms and wide hips signifying her fertility, donning a headdress adorned with coffee-bean or fruit shaped appliques and a fillet ornament over her shoulders, perhaps representing a serpent. Nice example! Wood block stand. Size: 5.25" H (13.3 cm); 6.875" H (17.5 cm) on stand

Condition: Losses to arms and tip of right foot. Expected surface wear commensurate with age.

Provenance: Ex- B. DiPietro collection, PA
