More About this Item


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.
