Jalisco Warrior Figure with Captive
100 BC to 250 AD
14″ tall by 9 1/2″ wide
A very rare warrior with captive from the Ameca-Etzatlan area of Jalisco, Mexico. This large sculpture is made in the “Ameca grey” color.
The figure is depicted towering over a smaller prisoner of war between his legs. He holds a blade in his right hand and the other is gripped on his hair. This is done to show complete domination and humiliation over his victim.
All of the details are very well done, with a nice face and delineated fingers and toes. This is only seen on the highest quality of this type.
One of the most interesting aspects of this piece is the armor that has been sculpted on the front and back. It resembles a flak jacket and was likely made from deer hide in ancient times.
This piece is in near mint condition with only a few restored fingers away from perfect!
Ex Dr R Fernandez MD collection. Acquired in the 1940s.
