Francisco Zuniga
Evelia with Gown, 1976
This graceful, calm figure has noble cheekbones. Her cotton frock is shapeless, yet her womanly form is conveyed with great sensitivity. Her thoughts are deep.Signed "Zuniga" on self base
Francisco Zuniga (1912-1998) was born in San Jose, Costa Rica. He worked as a helper in his father’s studio of religious sculpture at age sixteen. Zuniga was only eighteen when he carved a large maternal figure in stone. In 1936 he moved to Mexico, never to reside elsewhere.
 
Colima Seated Hunchback
Ca 100 BC - 250 AD
Protoclassic Period, Colima, West Mexico
Fine, two-tone, redware pottery figure of a male hunchback figure, or a figure suffering from the medical condition of “kyphosis”. The figure, of hollow fired terracotta, is seated with splayed legs, and hands resting on his knees. His well formed facial features display puffy cheeks, and perforated ear lobes, and a flared spout extends from the top center of his head.
 
Important Chancay Wooden Effigy Head
Ca late 800 - 1200 AD
Monumental carved, very dense, hardwood effigy head marker. Carved with relief facial features, having a high relief brow line and angular nose, elevated cheeks and rounded chin. Scattered areas of dark red, hardened resin pigment on the face; overall deep brown surface patina. Custom tapered pedestal base designed and made by Al Farrow, sculptor, San Francisco, CA. A rare and important example.
 
Stunning Folk Art Family Portrait, ca 1825
Likely New England, possibly New York
A most unusual and desirable rendering of a family closely yet comfortably composed, of three-quarter length, executed in scintillating pastels to achieve brilliant colors, lifelike quality, and a clarity that is undiminished over time. The foreground with children, the background likely showing the elder son flanked by proud parents.
 
Mask Representing a Human Face
350 - 100 BC, Mexico
The mouth is opened, the lips are full. The nose is straight and prominent. The thick arches of the eyebrows are in relief and create a zone of shade suggesting the eyes. The rectangular ears are salient and delimited by a gash. A limestone stain due to the age of the object, figures on the top of the right eye.

We notify the influence of the Mezcala style, by the stylized and schematised features that confers to the mask an enigmatic style and a significant presence.
