San Juanito Style Jalisco Terracotta Sculpture of a Standing Woman - PF.0970, Origin: Western Mexico, Circa: 300 BC to 300 AD, Dimensions: 21" (53.3cm) high x 9.75" (24.8cm) wide, Catalogue: V4, Collection: Pre-Columbian, Style: San Juanito, Medium: Terracotta. This magnificent woman is unquestionably an aristocrat, a person of rank and importance. It is not her jewels which tell us that, or her elaborately patterned clothes and hair. Rather, it is her regal bearing, the poised demeanor of a woman who knows what she wants from the world. A particularly splendid example of Jalisco ceramic art.
