Here’s another extraordinary Aztec pipe (AXH92) from the estate of the late Dr. Allen Heflin. Collected at the site of Cuautitlan, Mexico in 1961 (and characteristically marked by Heflin with that information in black ink on the base of its highly burnished redware stem), the bichrome pipe has been glued in two places and shows signs of ancient tip wear from the tightly clenched teeth of the Aztec warrior who smoked it...

This impressive 19 ½” tall, hollow bichrome figurine (LLL727) depicts a shaman-like male holding a large paddle or club. From the estate of the late Lynn Langdon, the figure was acquired in Mexico in the mid-20th century and is attributed to the Colima horizon, c.300BC-300AD. Thermoluminescence (TL) sampling by Bob Dodge of Artemis Gallery, and subsequent TL testing by the Kotalla lab in Germany, confirmed the piece as being of the period noted...

The late Dr. Allen Heflin’s collection is known around the world and has been described by a museum curator who was familiar with the collection as ‘unique and we’ll probably never see another like it in the States’.

This highly burnished red ware melon jar (CLP 1) is one of my favorite items from Claudia Proto's collection of West Mexican Pre-Columbian art. 8" wide and 6 1/4" tall, it simply bubbles with fun and style in spite of the its obviously damaged condition ( in our opinion, it still deserves a quality rank of '7', with 10 being the tops). Assigned to the Colima horizon dating c,100-300AD, it suffers a bruised nose and a rim that is missing a couple of chunks with some glue to hold another in place...

There are pieces from the Tiwanaku and Manteno horizons, as well as a few with unknown provenance, all very reasonably priced in a range from $75-$225, and ranging in condition that from 4 to 8 (on the 1-10 scale, with 10 being tops). Standouts in my eyes are the Tiahuanacan polychrome jar with the great but simply designed protrud...

Measuring 23” in length, this heavy carved wood staff handle (TF97.19) displays at its top a seated, long-faced, and rather gaunt-looking male with a tumpline around his brow holding a small burden on his back. Attributed to the Paramonga of Peru, c.1100-1400AD, this may have been the burden-carrier’s walking stick and the image on top, a depiction of how he probably felt at the end of a long walk carrying his burden. Well weathered and patinated with some light splitting from dehydration, t...
