Description
Ancient craftsmen in the state of Jalisco, located in the west coast region of Mexico, produced a dramatic array of art in clay, specializing in lively and interesting figures. Here, an extraordinary example of that artistry is revealed in this kneeling female figure. Commanding our attention with her disenchanted facial expression, she kneels on her folded right leg, the left leg bent at the knee. A wraparound skirt covers the lower portion of her body while the upper portion is burnished a lovely reddish brown tone. Her hands are poised resolutely on her knees, emphasizing her overall demeanor of discontent. Captivating and thought provoking, this sculpted female figure captures most vividly ancient peoples sensitivity to the human condition in all its varied complexities. - (PF.2466)
