Seller: sf-fineart (2,897) 100%, Location: Los Angeles, California, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, Item: 380852522933 Original or Reproduction: Original, Details: SUPERB Pre-Columbian CHANCAY Terracotta Standing Figure This is a magnificent original antique museum quality Pre-Columbian CHANCAY Terracotta Standing Figure, Peru, 1000 AD § 1450 AD. Unglazed earthenware figures such as this are typical of the Chancay, particularly the wide flattened head. The Chancay apparently developed in relative isolation from Tihuanaco around 1200 along the central coast of Peru. The distinctive Chancay style consists of white-slipped ceramics with black-lined decoration, and an unusual primitiveness pervades Chancay ceramics. Human figures were common and were frequently dressed in elaborate textiles. This magnificent figure is beautifully decorated with dark brown/black paint on the head, face and hands. It is in original ancient condition with natural wear due to age, measures 10 ½" high and is mounted to a wooden base for a total height of 12". PROVENANCE: This item comes directly from the estate of a Beverly Hills Pre-Columbian collector and was legally imported into the United States prior to 1970. Authenticity is GUARANTEED. Similar Chancay figures sell in galleries for over $3,500. Please scroll down on the item description to view additional photographs. Payment is due within 2 days.
