Description
With his large feet planted squarely, knees bent and holding a spear with both hands, this warrior is ready for war. His armor is fashioned like a barrel with a wide-open neck and a tent-shaped helmet, typical of a Jalisco warrior's battle dress. Large black open circles cover his face as a form of war paint or scarification, perhaps indicating rank. Appliqu├ęd eyes make his stare even more intense, while the clearly delineated finger and toenails add a touch of realism. The curious aspect of this figure is the fact he is very well protected around the torso, yet barefoot and exposed at the legs and arms. Whether used in a ceremonial context or as a symbol of martial realism, this male certainly gives the impression of a brave and noble figure. - (PF.1276)
