Description: Pre-Columbian, West Mexico, Tlatilco or Olmec, ca. 600 BCE. This is a small seated female figure, with large thighs and an oversized, ovoid head. The Olmec and Tlatilco are often considered the ancestors of much Mesoamerican art and this figure is an artistic precursor to the more famous West Mexican shaft tomb figurines, and the comparisons - and differences - are clear in the style. Size: 3.2" W x 3.75" H (8.1 cm x 9.5 cm)

Provenance: Ex Scollard collection, LA, California

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.
