Seller: rosaritojoey (276) 100%, Location: San Diego, California, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 123786744146 Up for sale is a rare, Precolumbian Veracruz El Faisan Ocarina figure with rattles circa 600 to 900 AD. El Faisan figures are rare in themselves but this one serves as a functioning Ocarina with the blow hole in his proper left arm and is also a rattle figure with its rattles intact. Something I have never seen before. He depicts a priest decked out in his finest wardrobe with the typical headdress worn by these figures. This figure is very expressive with his ceremonial filed teeth, ear spools, and strong paint also showing the typical designs these figures wear on their tunics depicted in red over an orange base as well as strong bitumen still present. He measures 8" by 4". Strong manganese deposits are present on his chest and neck. The last few pics show a similar figure which sold for $1100 US recently. These figures were low fired and always have breaks. Those are seen on the bottom quarter of the figure with old restoration. A rare and really nice figure that will make a great addition to your collection. As all my pieces, he's guaranteed 100% authentic or your money back..Ships within 24 hours via priority.. Thanks for looking.
