with rounded head and slightly hunched back, decorated with bold step fret design covering the face and chest, the thighs covered in concentric diamonds flanked by energetic markings.

Acquired in the 1950's

Catalogue Note

The distinctive black outlining characteristic of Chupícuaro figures is particularly thickly applied on this figure; the lively pattern on the lower body perhaps indicates movement and animation.
