DescriptionLot of Three Colima Flats
C. 200 BC-200 AD
7¼" to 9½" Tall
The lot consists of all males, each a different style. First, a smooth clay flat with his hand against the chin, wearing a turban, armbands, and ear ornaments, else nude. Figure is thin and flat and intact, excellent. Mid sized figurine is Autlan Colima variant showing a more realistic human form of a ballplayer. He wears a turban, nicely modeled proportions, and with a sash at the waist. The figure retains traces of original rare yellow paint and is solid with only a slight ancient chip to the nose. Third example is a tall male wearing elaborate turban with a bird head, beaded collar with dangling lappets, armbands, and a decorated and incised loin cover. Example is reglued cleanly from three pieces.
