Fabulous / Tall Chupicuaro Redware Female Figure

Pre-Columbian, West Mexico, Guanajuato Valley, Chupicuaro, ca. 300 to 100 BCE. A fabulous Chupicuaro standing female figure with a strikingly flat, abstract form and an attractive bi-chrome finish, her hollow form skillfully painted in hues of red and cream, with a lovely vertical striped pattern adorning her headdress or coiffure above her almond/diamond-shaped eyes.

She stands upon a pair of straight legs with her attenuated arms to her sides, framing her wide hips. Size: 10.375" H (26.4 cm); 10.625" H (27 cm) on included custom stand.

Condition: Expected surface wear with some pigment loss as shown. Nice areas of manganese deposits. Old inventory label on back of leg.
