    Lot of Three Pre-Classic Maternity Figures

    Colima and Tlatilco
    C. 800 BC-200 AD
    Buff Pottery
    2¾" to 5" Tall

    The Colima woman sits with her legs pointed forward and holds the baby as it faces to the front. Both she and the baby have small chips to the nose and child's head cleanly attached. Nice deposits. The smaller Tlatilco is an unusual tiny size. She has wide thick legs and holds the child in her left arm as it smiles. Child's head attached else appears original and with traces of ancient red. Larger Tlatilco is ornately garbed, holding the infant on her back and is pregnant. This figure, with a couple minor repairs and strong patina.
