Seller: bradleyo21 (538) 100%, Location: Simcoe, Ontario, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 271941024505 Up for offers is a very fine Colima Seated Shaman from Western Mexico. It has excellent size at 12 1/2 inches tall, and quite solid and heavy. He has a large oval shell style necklace and a cap with a single horn. It's in very good shape for a ceramic piece this old. The only flaw I can spot is a pressure crack across the back, but I don't see any obvious damage. This exceptional piece is out of the renowned Dr. Earl Riddick collection. It was acquired during the early 1960's, largely from Dr. David Warner. Over the next few decades, Dr. Frederick Dockstader appraised the collection several times, including this piece (at least twice). Dockstader is a very well known author and authority on Native and Pre Columbian cultures, and was the Director of the Museum of American Indian (Heye Foundation) in New York City from 1960-1975. Please feel free to make an offer on this rare Colima masterpiece.
