Figurine fragment

900-1400 CE
Unknown Artist (Mesoamerican)

The white slip and fine-grained paste is typical of pottery figurines from the Gulf Coast lowlands of Veracruz and Tabasco. The facial style and headdress elements are typical of Post-Classic figurines in this region as well as the adjacent Mexican states of Puebla and Morelos. Given that Hartley lived and traveled in the central highlands, it is more likely the piece came from Central Mexico.
