A Jalisco male seated figure holding a large flared bowl surrounded by pointed rim enhancements, balanced on the right knee with both hands. He is nude with his head turned to the left, with an object, perhaps peyote protruding from his mouth- such is the way of the shaman. He wears multi-faceted earrings. Buff clay, with some remains of red paint.$2500
