Item:312111096046I have had this Pre Columbian Clay Stamp Or Seal for about 20 years. It is a true piece of ancient art. I purchased it from a lady who told me she was on the site where it was dug and when it was found some 20 years plus before my purchase. It was near Quito Ecuador, she was there as a government guest and was given this and other pieces as gifts. I have done some online research on Pre Columbian Art and specifically clay figures, stamps and seals such as this one but I have to admit that I really don’t know very much. I will attempt to describe this stamp as best I can, please contact me with questions and I’ll do my best to answer them. It measures about 5 1/2 inches across (It is not perfectly round so the diameter varies a bit) and measures about 3 inches from the face of the stamp to the tip of the handle. I don’t know just what the design signifies or represents but it is very elaborate. I’m sure the symbols, designs and figures have meaning, maybe someone out there will know just what the design stands for. The back side is very basic with no detail. It has a “handle” which was undoubtedly used to hold and apply the stamp or seal. I would say it is in incredible condition considering it’s age in the ground and some 40-50 years in a collection. It actually still after all these years has some of the original dirt on it from the site where it was dug. It is in what I would call perfect or near perfect condition with no damage or repair. I would say museum quality. It is wonderful...... I don’t know how a Pre Columbian Clay stamp could be much better. Buyers are responsible for the shipping cost based on their location.
