Ixtlan Del Rio Marriage Pair


100 BC to 250 AD

11″ on the tallest

A detailed and expressive Ixtlan Del Rio marriage pair from Nayarit, Mexico. This couple is very expressive and detailed, with remnants of white and black paint applied post fire.

The male is shown smoking a cigar. He wears a headdress with a strap and a bag over his shoulder. She has a simple turban with a bowl on her head. They both wear earrings and nose rings.  

The exposed ribs and back are thought to refer to birth and creation rather than sickness and disease as was previously thought.

This couple was owned by the Academy Award winning actor Kirk Douglas from Beverly Hills. He owned this pair from the 1950s up until his recent death.

 This couple is in amazing condition. The female is perfect with no chips, repairs or restoration. The male has a small chip on his proper left hand middle finger and a flea bite on a toe from his left foot. Otherwise, he is perfect with no repairs or restoration.
