Colima  Shaman Figure


100 BC to 250 AD

12″ tall

A fantastic Comala figure from Colima, Mexico. 

He is sculpted throwing a ball with his right hand and wears a large backsplash. The headdress tied in a horn shape in front indicates his shaman status. The serene and calm expression is a hallmark of Comala figures.

This piece is made from the same hand as those published in Hasso Von Winning’s book, “Pre-Columbian Art of Mexico and Central America” page 89.

Ex Cheng-Ley collection. Acquired in the 1940s. Ex Meza collection from Whittier, California.  Ex Stendahl Gallery from Los Angeles, California. 1960s.
