Standing woman - Michoacan

Condition: Good condition
Object sold with a certificate of authenticity

The head is surmounted by a sought-after cap formed by a striated band surmounted by circles.
The almond-shaped eyes are raised. The right nose is long and the nostrils are pierced. The open mouth has hemmed lips. It is adorned with large circular earrings. The face is stuck in the shoulders. The neck is masked by a large necklace.
Her shapes are generous: her breasts are prominent and her hips marked. The arms are short and thick. The fingers of the hands and feet are marked with thin grooves.
The legs are clear.

This standing woman illustrates an artistic mastery by the meticulousness of details, and technical by the use of pastillage and incised motifs. The smoothly rounded volumes give the piece an exceptional grace.
