DescriptionStanding Jalisco Ball Player
C. 200 BC-200 AD
Buff Pottery with Paint
The male stands nude, wearing a small band at the head, the left arm down to his side, and carrying a ball in his left arm. He looks intently with bold white eyes. Traces of white paint indicate further sashes he could be wearing. The body is slightly overweight with large thick thighs and arching long feet. The ball game was a ceremonial ritual to the Jalisco culture, as well as others, and served the deities so, to perform at them was of the utmost importance. This example has losses to the nose and mouth, glued at the neck, and some surface erosion.
