Description
Richly costumed and wearing considerable jewelry, this orange and white slipped figure represents an individual of prominence. His distended mouth suggests he is lost in a drug- induced trance, an important ritual associated with funerals and ceremonies of transition between one world and another. So engrossed is he that he has failed to notice he has arrived in a very different world indeed. - (PF.0931)
