Up for Auction - One of a kind! Beautiful pre-Columbian Colima Culture Dog pottery from Nayarit Mexico. This faithful companion was sourced from a wealthy estate and was in their possession for many years. The estate claims to have paid $1,200 for the pre-Columbian pottery dog many years ago. I am not a pre-Columbian pottery expert so I have no way of authenticating this wornderful artifact so please do your research and look at the photos prior to bidding. The overall condition is excellent and there are no major flaws or damage to the pottery. About pre-Columbian Colima Dogs - Many expressive ceramic sculptures of small, hairless, fat dogs have been found in tombs in Northwestern Mexico. There a culture known as Colima evolved around 2200 and 1500 years ago. The people of the Colima Culture valued their dogs, who were their companions, guardians and sometimes even their food. Ancient stories illustrate the importance of dogs in pre-Columbian culture. One story tells us of the first man who survived the great flood thanks to his friend—dog. Dog did everything for the first man including finding corn to eat and making fire. Some of the pre-Columbian peoples believe dogs were the companions of the god of the underworld. Others believed that dogs guarded the souls of the dead as they traveled through the dangerous regions of the underworld. Dogs, like this one, were probably places in Colima tombs to accompany and guard the soul in the afterlife. Condition - There is a small fleck missing from the tip of the tail. There is also what appears to be a slightly different color / finish to a small spot on the back. In addition there is a small 1/4 inch crack on the front of the left ear but it doesn't appear to go through or be very visible in any way. The last place to point out is the white spot on the bottom. This is paper/ glue remains from a inventory tag from the estate. I did not want to try and scrub or clean the glue / paper off as I don't want to damage the finish in any way.
