A gorgeous Parrot from La Tolita culture, Ecuador. As with most clay pottery from this culture, the detail and realism are always striking. This large bird is sitting on top of a domed base posed with head turned, preening its feathers. Nice incised detail over head and body. Made using a volcanic grainy clay deposited during the 467 BC Palulahua eruption. Reassembled and restored. Esmeraldas region. 300 BC-100 AD. Measures an impressive 9" in length.
