Description
With its abstract energy, the art of Ancient Nayarit appeals directly to modern sensibilities. This lively figure, one of a pair, was buried in a tomb centuries ago to pass eternity with the deceased. He no doubt represents the individual who placed him there in a gesture of mourning and respect. That person was perhaps a tribal chieftain or a warrior. The figure’s fan suggests his rank in society, while his body is covered with ornate tattoos. It is his vivid facial expression that most holds our attention. He seems to be trying to communicate some essential emotion across the bridge of time. In his presence, we are connected directly with a vanished world. - (PF.1467)
