Pre-Columbian, West Mexico, Jalisco, San Juanito, ca. 200 BCE to 200 CE.

Possessing a characteristically elongated head, he presents a rather tranquil visage comprised of slit eyes and mouth, a long, protruding nose, and angular ears. He wears a crossed headband of applied and incised coils, and his body is painted in red and white slip. A wonderful example with nice manganese deposits. Size: 3.75" W x 5.125" H (9.5 cm x 13 cm)
