Large Jalisco Wrestler Figure

100 BC to 250 AD

 13″ tall by 10″ wide by 10″ long  

A large Jalisco Ameca wrestler figure from Jalisco, Mexico. This hunchback most likely depicts a shaman, as he is shown holding a mirror with his right hand. Mirrors were considered a portal into the Underworld. 

He is expressive and sculpted with delineated fingers and toes, as well as nails. The firing hole is in the left ear and hidden with the left hand which is framing his face. 

A beautiful example!
