DescriptionExceptionally Large Colima Man with One Eye
C. 200 BC-200 AD
11½" Tall x 5½" Wide
The dramatic solid body statue is smoothly polished and lightly burnished overall depicting a pleasant looking figure standing slightly bow legged, the sloping shoulders terminating in tapered hands with grooved fingers, wearing a tall turban, and an incised loin cover with flap extending below. A particularly rare depiction, the man has one incised oval eye on his left, the other side undecorated with a consistent smooth surface; the left ear lobe is normal, the right with the flare hole oblong and stretched; and nose carved with a septum, one side much larger than the other. The statue represents a man who suffered a facial trauma due to disease or battle. In an excellent state of preservation, the tall example is solid, intact, and covered with light encrustations and ancient deposits overall.
