Description
Ancient artisans in the state of Nayarit, located in the west coast region of Mexico, produced a stunning array of art in clay, specializing in sensitive and expressive figures. Nowhere is that artistry more powerfully rendered than in this Nayarit female effigy vessel. Here we see the frontal view of a kneeling woman, hands resting on her skirted knees. A large beaded necklace is framed at the bottom by her two pointed breasts. While her head is poised atop a slim neck in a delicate fashion, we see that the weight of the large basket that forms the bowl portion of the vessel weighs heavily upon this workingwoman's neck and shoulders. Nevertheless, her facial expression is one of supreme dignity and beauty, for she truly carries with her an inner spirit that is at once strong and serene. - (PF.2424)
