Tuxcacuesco-Ortices Style Colima Terracotta Sculpture of a Standing Man - PF.0297,Origin: Colima, Mexico,Circa: 300 BC to 300 AD,Dimensions: 4.625" (11.7cm) high x 2.5" (6.4cm) wide,Collection: Pre-Columbian,Style: Tuxcacuesco-Ortices,Medium: Terracotta. This charming terracotta represents a citizen of ancient Colima, perhaps an athlete. In the details of his costume and gestures, in his function as a tomb votive, he gives us clues about an otherwise vanished world. Even as we acknowledge the vast gulf between his culture and our own, we recognize the fundamental human qualities we share, and which time has not altered.
