A fine Nayarit figure from West Mexico, ca. 200 BC – 300 AD. This seated Ixtlan del Rio example is 5” high and depicts a male engaged in a mourning ritual. His arms are wrapped around the updrawn knees and his cheeks are extended, with rods projecting from the open mouth. He is adorned with large ear ornaments, nose ring and bracelets. Heavy mineral deposits, head reattached.

Cf. Leyenaar “Von Kuste Zu Kuste”, page 319.
