DescriptionLot of Chupicuaro Pretty Ladies and Tlatilco Ballplayer
Chupicuaro and Tlatilco
C. 800-200 BC
3" to 3¾" inches tall
Two refined miniature flat figurines depicting women with wide 'coffee bean' eyes, their hair pulled highly over the head, each wearing earspools and a necklace with a central round pendant. Paired with a fine Tlatilco standing man in ball player garb. He stands upright, arms to his side, a loin cover wrapped around the hips, and wearing a small helmet with the strap wrapped underneath his nose. Overall, the figure retains strong original creamy white slip and the incised hair is painted in red. A scarce example with only one arm cleanly reattached and holds a strong patina.
