The area known archaeologically as West Mexico has long been recognized as a region of beautiful ceramic sculptures, manifestations of a reverence for ancestors and a belief in the power of symbolism. These traits are recognized as characteristic of the cultural development of the region during the period from 300 B.C. to 400 A.D., the time of the Colima culture. Colima is best known for its finely finished red burnished effigies, both of humans and animals, especially dogs, and the solid small unburnished figurines, commonly called Colima flats. This beautifully modeled, solid archaic standing figure is depicted with arms across chest (holding a child?) and wearing a head adornment. It measures 2.5 inches in width by 1.0 inches in depth by 4 inches in height (6.35 cm by 2.54 cm by 10.1 cm). The figure shows wear consistent with a Pre-Columbian dating, including obvious wear, but generally is in very good condition. It also comes with a specially designed, hand-made iron museum display stand for display. Guaranteed authentic, it would make a superb addition to any collection of Pre-Columbian ceramics. The famous mural artist Diego Rivera began his collection of Mexican pottery with small Colima figures - the collection later grew into a national treasure which was eventually housed in the Rivera Museum in Mexico City. GJPaw Auctions has been in the Art business for over 25 years and is now expanding its operation to eBay.
