Chancay Bichrome Rattle - Human Form
Pre-Columbian, Chancay, modern day Peru, ca. 1000 to 1470 CE. This is a hollow pottery rattle in the shape of a person -- it may be female -- lying on a pallet with arms outstretched. It is done in the distinctive Chancay style of black on white pottery. The palleted figure is a common image throughout the pre-Columbian world, known, for example, from the West Mexican shaft tomb cultural tradition. It calls to mind someone who probably dead, being carried to a burial site or ceremony. Although relatively little is known about the Chancay culture, their neighbors, the Inca, had a strong tradition of mummification and veneration of the mummified dead, including bringing the mummies of emperors to special events. The body on the pallet might represent the moving of a revered ancestor.

Near-Lifesize Roman Marble Head of Woman
Roman, Imperial period, ca. 3rd to 4th century CE. A remarkably lifelike marble carving of a woman's head, frozen forever in an expression that suggests a quiet thoughtfulness and silent observation. Her large eyes stare forward from underneath deep brows, with a long, straight nose and a thin-lipped mouth that is quirked into a slight smile. Deep lines down from her nose to her mouth suggest that she is an older woman, although the rest of her face is smooth. Her hair has been carefully styled in a center-parted series of waves that are pulled back behind her head. Size: 5.55" W x 8.55" H (14.1 cm x 21.7 cm); 13.15" H (33.4 cm) on included custom stand. The hair style is the clue to the age of this piece. From the 3rd century CE onward, Roman sculptors commonly began to use running drills for decorative effects. Holding a wooden support in one hand to guide the drill bit, the sculptor would drill into the surface at a 30-45 degree angle, repeatedly lifting and moving the drill to create a series of holes at a shallow angle to the surface of the stone, creating the appearance of a channel, as you can see here with the wavy effect used to create the hair. The eyes also have noticeable drill marks. This is not only a beautiful piece, but also demonstrates the skill and tools of Roman artists.
