Exceptional pottery figural group depicting a central seated chief surrounded by three female attendants. Chief holds a large cigar-like implement to his mouth, and two females are seated in the front holding their hands on his shoulders, one holding a food bowl. The third female is guarding his back. They are wearing beaded head and arm bands. Covered with cream colored slip, with some remaining geometric decoration on the females’ breasts and painted highlights. Scattered mineral deposits on the surface. Intact and excellent condition. A very rare and important example.
