DescriptionChinesco Splay Legged Polychrome Statue
C. 200 BC-100 AD
9" tall x 6½" wide
A personable votive figure seated with the legs spread to each side, on typical thick thighs with the legs ending in points. The wide heart shaped face bears thin fine eyebrows, a tattooed face with large areas surrounding the eyes ending in a comet shaped tail, the left drawing vertically, while the right points down; beneath the small pointed nose is a tiny upraised smile. The neck exhibits a wide red band and the torso and arms with large crossed bands in black on the cream ground. An intact and excellent example with only minor ancient abrasions to tips of feet and nose. Covered with calcified deposits, strong patina, and other ancient minerals; rare to find with such strong original paint.
