    What can you tell me about this piece?

    I have taken 34 photos of it, which you can find here:
    Fired clay human effigy - a set on Flickr

    Sorry about the shadows, my lighting was very poor.
    Many of the pictures are very detailed.

    What do you think this is? Do you think this is an authentic or reproduction?
    What culture do you think it is associated with, what is the age, ect?
    What are your thoughts about this piece?

    Thank you for looking and thanks for your time.

    It's modeled after a Teotihuacan or other Central Mexico figure. The head and ear spools are pretty common for the type.

    I don't think it's old, the clay doesn't look right and the body/feet are pretty crude to have ear spools like that.

    I'll post a couple of pictures in the morning, oddly enough most of the old ones are mold made and the newer ones are hand made. I have a couple of the molds.

    Here are the two molds I have, they are sideways in the picture (photobucket changed, and the new editor to spin them doesn't open up for me...) They would press the clay in these, and could produce hundreds of identical statues.

    Why are you the way that you are? Honestly, every time I try to do something fun or exciting, you make it......not that way. I hate so much about the things that you choose to be. ~Michael Scott~

    It looks like something you took a pic of, and that's about all that can safely be said without knowing where and the archaeological context in which it was found.
    Just like Texas in 1880.
