Jalisco Female Figure


An excellent example of a Jalisco female figure measuring approximately 10 1/2 inches tall, 7 inches wide. This hollow figure depicts a seated female with arms engaged in an ancient symbolic gesture. A very eye appealing example of this type. Great proportion and nice features.  She is shown wearing multiple ear ornaments, arm bands/bangles, and a cap or short headdress of some kind.  Strong remnants of the original light grey slip with red painted accents still exist. Only minor professional restoration has been performed as follows: left leg reattached at hip with minor restoration only over a clean break line, minor thin hairline crack was stabilized and restoration at the bottom of the figure, tip of right pinky finger was missing and restored.  Surface has a fantastic patina. Mineral deposits and root marks to bear her age. An aesthetically appealing piece.  Provenance; Paul Clifford’s Collection (a published pre-Columbian art scholar and author).
