Protoclassic, 100 B.C. to A.D. 250.

A masterfully detailed Chinesco Type 'E' female figure with original red and black painted decorations on a creamy kaolin slip. The hair is very finely incised, and the overall work is indicative of a specific ancient Nayarit workshop or individual artist who created this sub-style.

Dimensions: Height: 8+ inches (20.3 cm.)

Condition: There is some minor professional repair in the head area. This lady is in otherwise excellent condition.
