DescriptionMasked Personage Holding Implements
Ça 200 BC-200 AD
Slipped and burnished ceramic
14" High x 9¾" Wide
This imposing figure is shown wearing a mask, a tasseled headband and a broad brimmed basketry hat with horn shaped top element. Like many Colima objects, the figure also serves as a vessel. The vessel's spout emerges from a basketry ring in the middle of his back. He carries a ceremonial object in each hand. His wrists and legs are adorned with disc shaped objects. It is a powerful, regal figure. Its presence is much more commanding than its dimensions would suggest. The object appears to be in very good condition with very little breakage and minimal repair to the hat's rim. It has a rich manganese patina indicating great age.
