Item:323675407840PRE COLUMBIAN JAMA-COAQUE FEMALE FRAGMENT AUTHENTIC This is an authentic Pre Columbian pottery fragment Ecuador Jamacoaque 500 BC - 100 AD. It has a highly natural burnished finish with evidence of turquoise pigment especially on the collar. The figure is wearing a skirt, necklace and bracelet and has a large nose ring and what appears to be a chin plug.The face is very detailed and distinct. with heavily lidded eyes. It has not been cleaned or polished in any way and the surface debris around one eye and above can be removed professionally or I will leave that up to the buyer. The debris is stuck to the surface as you can see in close up photos.The head and upper torso are in excellent condition. The torso is broken unevenly longer on one side so it needs support from the inside for display and the figure completely hollow. It has no stand so I just supported it for photographs as it will not stand by itself.A square base with a vertical rod is all it needs for display, The left hand is missing fingers and the right hand looks as if it has been badly restored as the edges do not line up as if it were repaired while wet .I have tried to photograph the repairs but it is difficult as the one line is on the inside of the arm. The bracelet on the wrist on the front side does not have a seam and is in line with the other bracelet on the opposite side so the fingers must have been replace or re attached. Measurements are approximate 5 1/2 inches across from hand to hand in the front and 61/2 inches high to the top of the head from the longest side. 4 inches across the shoulders. The face alone is 2 x 2 and ear to ear is 3 inches and a little over 3 inches to the top of the head to the chin. The head or headdress is 3 1/2 inches across the crown over the eyes. Since the figure is rounded these are approximate measurements. The upper portion of this figure is remarkable even around the back. The figure is completely hollow. Color varies a bit in the photos as it is not as deep a color but I wanted to show details. A beautiful piece to add to a collection or to start a new collection.SUBJECT:FEMALE FRAGM,ENT, Featured Refinements:Pre-Columbian Antiquities, pottery:Pre Columbian, culture:JAMA-COAQUE, Material:POTTERY, Provenance:PRIVATE FLORIDA COLLECTION, country of origin:ECUADOR, original:AUTHENTIC, AGE:500 B C - 100 AD
