Michoacan Sculpture of a Standing Woman - PF.0371, Origin: Michoacan, Mexico, Circa: 300 BC to 300 AD, Dimensions: 5.75" (14.6cm) high, Collection: Pre-Columbian, Style: Michoacan, Medium: Terracotta. There is a delightful symmetry to this woman which makes us forget the illogic of her proportions. She is, in her own way, as perfect as any Hellenistic Venus--poised, unabashed and seductive. Her large, heavy lidded eyes are particularly attractive. If we stare at her long enough, they come to fixate our attention.
