This figurine is of a seated female. She is covered from foot to head with tribal tattoos. By the enlarged earlobes we can deduce that she is a woman of substance. She has many feminine characteristics. Her thick legs and rounded abdomen create a softness and supple beauty. This object d'art is an emblem of divine womanhood. Her reclining pose suggests the informality to which ever she is talking to. The ease of her position is suggestive and sensual. Her face is attentive and alert. Her wide eyes and protruding lips slightly opened give her more sensitivity and emotion. The deep dark lines of the tattoos also give the face a quality of seriousness and thought. The blood red color the artist chose for this piece dramatizes a woman's fertility. The artist was able to bring out the hidden animal nature of the Costa Rican women. This beautiful rendition of womanliness and fertility is a gateway to perceive the sensuality of the women of Costa Rica. - (PF.4294)
