This standing female figure was crafted in 400-100 BC from the ancient Chupicuaro region of Mexico. The ceramic works of the Chupicuaro people are distinguished by their slanted, coffee-bean shaped eyes and flattened features. This particular ceramic figure carries a message of fertility. The subject is depicted holding her breast, alluding to her role as mother and nurturer. Female figures like these were often used as ritual or burial offerings, meant to provide hope of fertility in life and rebirth in the afterlife.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
