13969. Nayarit Chinesca Pottery Sanding Figure
West Mexico, Protoclassic, ca. 100 B.C. - A.D. 250
Perhaps the most desirable of all Nayarit pottery styles, an unusually large Chinesca pottery female standing with legs slightly apart, possessing a characteristic heart-shaped head with a minimalist visage comprised of black lined slitted eyes, a protruding nose, and a small slit mouth. Her hands are placed to her slightly protruding womb, just above her voluptuous thighs.
