DescriptionColima Bound Prisoner Vessel
C. 200 BC-200 AD
Slipped and Burnished Pottery
6" tall x 6¾" Wide
The figure sits upon the ground, the head protruding between his knees, the torso awkwardly pulled back, the spine shown on the top, and with the shoulders aggressively drawn back and the hands crossed far behind. He wears an incised cap with a wide chin strap, piercings at the ears, and eyes bulging out. The figure is a captured foe from battle and now sits with the hands tied awaiting a decision on what his fate will be. The pottery is covered with a pale reddish slip, the left leg reconstructed at the knee, the right with a clean break, and chips to the right ear and spout. A scarce depiction.
Estimate: $800 - $1,200.
