Description
This lovely Nayarit woman, serene and poised, looks as if she is in a state of meditation. Rendered in the "Chinesco" style, she has the attributes often associated with oriental figures- a heart-shaped face, pointed nose, and quietly slanted eyes. Her burnished red body has been decorated with painted garments, and her nose adorned with a ring. With her hands fused on her slightly protruding belly, and her pointed breasts emphasized; is it possible that the artist was depicting a young pregnant woman? Placed long ago in an ancient tomb, she may have offered the hope of rebirth in the afterlife. Now centuries later, her serene half-smile is still intoxicating. - (PF.2782)
