      These are in really beautiful condition for coming from Mayan areas. Were they dug? They are wood or clay? Size?
    2. turtlezman turtlezman, 8 years ago
      thank you for the compliment! they were dug by an archaeologist who lives in a neighboring town. they were dug in the 1990's. they are about 7 inches tall and are clay.

      Truly beautiful & thanks for sharing. You don't know the general area they came from?
    4. turtlezman turtlezman, 8 years ago
      thanks again. i think the area is either argentina or columbia... one of them.. i forget which however.
    5. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 8 years ago
      That's a bit to far S. for Mayan, though there was trade.
    6. turtlezman turtlezman, 8 years ago
      i remember they were considered "Colima" figures... wherever that is I am not sure.
    7. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 8 years ago
      Colima is a district in Mexico that has it's W. side to the Pacific. From what I have looked up, that would be the outer fringes of the Mayan territory. I was just casually interested & not taking it up as a new interest to do intense research.
    8. turtlezman turtlezman, 8 years ago
      oh well thank you for looking it up! i'll take a look at your items as well.

      these are really interesting. probably illegal too - if they were really dug up in the 1990s. I think that they are from the Narino culture of present-day Colombia - Capuli Complex, AD 850 - 1500. But they might be Carchi from Ecuador. Definitely Incan, not Mayan. The lumps in their cheeks are wads of coca leaves. These statues are called 'Coqueros'. the two pots in the male figure's hands are interesting. i think that one of the pots held lemon juice and the other one, possibly lime. the lemon juice and lime would react w/ the coca leaves and release the narcotic effect. the eyes are amazing! they really embody the narcotic state which was an important ritual in their religion. I've never seen a female coquera before. They are really museum pieces, although the market is not as strong as you might think for South American pieces like these.

      it's also interesting that the female figure has a much smaller wad in her cheek and her eyes are not nearly as dilated as his are. she's also not sitting on the bench which is almost always seen in coqueros.

      Ho2, you seem well versed in this thing. What exactly is this "lime" they used and how did primitive people make it. I'm still trying to figure out who discovered that drinking your own urine after eating those Ruskie mushrooms got you high ? That was a strange wanker I'm sure !! A German girlfriend tried that in Siberia and I didn't kiss her for a week (well, not on those lips).
