Seller: trobador (2,301) 100%, Location: Amesbury, Massachusetts, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 371763996715 Auction description Precolombian art: Beautiful and expressive terracotta head, Columbia Tiny and mysteriously powerful is this little sculpted bust, pre-Columbian, described as from the Tumaco culture of Colombia, somewhere between 1,500 and 1,000 years old. It's the image of a male head, done I believe in terra cotta, and the expressivity is astounding. The provenance is an auction at the Hotel Drouot, Paris (May 11, 2006) and I guarantee its authenticity as a pre-Columbian artifact. I'm not sure of its original function, sacred or secular....is there a pre-Columbian specialist in the ebay community who wants to tell us more? Dimensions are roughly 2 inches high by 2 inches across by 1 inch deep. There is some wear from age, but the "vibe" is quite strong and palpable. Beautiful art from another place in the cosmos. Shipping will be $7 within the U.S. And you can view my other offers here. Material: Sandstone, Provenance: Auction in Paris, France
