Description
The Chinesco style represented in Pre- Columbian art is favored for its fine workmanship and exotic appearance. Found primarily in shaft and chamber tombs, the term ‘Chinesco’ is used to describe the vague Oriental feel of such pieces as well as a collective heading for previously unknown or unrecognized ceramics of related styles. This lovely piece sits regally, face serene. His high cheekbones and slanted almond eyes is a definitive characteristic of Chinesco. To touch it is to notice the finely polished surface. All of his ornaments are beautifully painted rather than appliquéd with the exception of his nose clip. He is a mysterious reminder of the Asian influence in early Western Mexico. - (PF.2760)
