Large Colombian Quimbaya Pottery Effigy Jar

Sold on LiveAuctioneers

Lot 0239B Details

Description
Pre-Columbian, Colombia, Quimbaya, ca. 1000 to 1500 CE. A wonderful handbuilt earthenware effigy vessel presenting an anthropomorphic form with an intriguing globular silhouette atop a concave pedestal foot with a rolled rim - the upper section featuring the humanoid head with applied coffee bean shaped eyes, a protruding perforated nose, closed coffee bean shaped lips, and cup shaped ears. The face is further embellished with incised zigzag and dotted motifs, perhaps to represent scarification or tattoos. Across the shoulder of the lower section is a sinuous filet; the central section is incised to represent a beaded necklace or collar, and the ends are incised to look like fingered hands with dotted bracelets adorning the wrists. Size: 9.625" W x 9.625" H (24.4 cm x 24.4 cm)

Provenance: private Vaught collection, Atlanta, Georgia USA

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
