Colima Pottery Turtle, Mexico, ca 100 BC
A rare and interesting burnished red Colima pottery turtle. The turtle is peaking his head out of his engraved shell. Close attention to detail was carried out as is evidenced by the small molded tail. Carved with naturalistic realism the artist certainly had intimate knowledge of the subject matter. Excellent condition. 4 1/2" height x 9 1/2" length x 6 1/2" width.
