This outstanding small pestle, produced by the Muisca people who lived in the fertile basins of the high eastern Andes, is beautifully carved in the form of a seated man, with arms folded across his chest and resting on his bent knees. Carved in raised relief, the features show surprisingly exquisite detailing for such a practical piece suggesting it was made for a person of importance.

Condition: Intact and in excellent condition overall with outstanding crystallized surface deposits

Dimensions: Height: 2.12 inches (5.4 cm)

Provenance: ex: Klassen Collection; ex: Joel Malter collection, assembled in the 1980s, thereafter a private Canadian collection, acquired from the trade in 2012.
