A Large Jama Coaque Female Figure

DATE
Notes: c. 500 BC - 500 AD

The dignified female stands with arms straight down and fists clenched, her face set in a lively, alert expression, with mouth open as though vocalizing and eyelids raised; wearing knee-length skirt, multiple armbands, a large collar with separate bead necklace, multiple earrings, a nose ring, studs at sides of nose, cheeks, jaw and chin, and a broad headscarf with long tapering ends. Superbly modeled from hollow buff earthenware with brown and cream burnished slip. Examined under blacklight: proper left scarf restored to shoulder: otherwise appears intact, with speckled black manganese deposits.
