The potters of Central Veracruz on Mexico’s gulf coast created molded figures of great realism. Their “smiling faces” are unusual in Pre-Colombian art. This appealing pair in terra cotta show the customary deforming of the skull popular among the Totonacs, 500-900 AD. Made in a mold and hand detailed, these little figures are finished in a burnished red. Buy individually or as a pair! 7″ x 4″.
