Carefully balanced in a sitting position, this female figure rests with her legs outspread, toes slightly pointed forward. As is characteristic, this figure demonstrates a highly burnished finish and graceful curves. She wears a beaded waistband, harmoniously echoing her double-stranded necklace. Nayarit figures from the Lagunillas region are generally divided into five subtypes. According to the classification established in 1974 by Von Winning, this figure demonstrates the characteristics of type D figures, typically attributed to the area inland from San Blas. Unlike other types of Nayarit figures, jewelry on this type of figure is usually indicated by fillet as opposed to red paint. This figure’s ears are lined with earrings. Her hair is finely incised and frames her broad forehead while her slitted eyes lie close to the center of her face and a long nose stretches down to her small mouth. These gracefully placed traits relay an aura of absolute serenity.
