Seller: jovanova21 (229) 100%, Location: Bethesda, Maryland, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 282267201598 I believe this South American statue represents Manteno people, culture. Made of dark brown clay-earth pottery, looks like archeological authentic figurine. Some pieces are broken. The right arm is glued, connected long time ago. The glue is not visible but broken-connected line - Yes.Please see my pictures. I inspected this figurine, by my oppiniom the head also was broken and repaired much earlier. All repairs are old. Inside the neck you could notice supporting layer of clay, but later head again split away from the body. Also outside, neck glaze is little more mate than whole figurine. Fingers of right foot are broken and some part of hands. According to these details, I listed it as ancient . Strong archeological appearance with dominating nose, earnings and longer hair. On the back of this statue there are two wholes, it supposed to be for wire, rope, incense... to be connected to some other object???Might be religious, ceremony, ritual, protection statue??? Inside, figure is empty, has space, not solid. I am not Pre Columbian pottery expert, I describe this figurine, what I see, small details, some clues, research, and by my own intuition, feelings. Might be wrong, might be right, please judge by yourself. It reminds me also on Inca people, small, strong shoulders body. Size, 7.5" high, and 3.5" across the shoulders. I did not like to glue and connect head in a case someone wish to do professional restoration. Comes in a condition as I found it. Always welcome some information from e-bay visitors. International buyers, please ask for shipping cost before bidding. Feel free to ask any additional questions.
