Description: Pre-Columbian, Ecuador, Bahia/ Jamacoaque culture, ca. 500 CE. A fragment of a hollow pottery head with large nose and a wide headdress that on another continent would look like that of a bishop. Headdresses, jewelry, and styles of dress were all signifiers of rank and social status within many pre-Columbian societies; to a member of the Jamacoaque, this figure probably had even deeper meaning, describing who the figure was in that society. Size: 3.75" W x 4.5" H (9.5 cm x 11.4 cm)

Provenance: Ex - private LA County collection acquired before 1990

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.

A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany all winning bids.

We ship worldwide and handle all shipping in-house for your convenience.

#116303

Condition Report: Head is a fragment, with clear features and headdress.
