Lord, Jama-Coaque, AD 400

The culture called La Tolita/Tumaco and its neighbor, the Jama-Coaque, flourished two thousand years ago in the Pacific coast lowlands close to the border of present-day Ecuador and Colombia. The period of the greatest cultural achievement lasted until around AD 400. Some ceramic figures allude to the chiefs of Jama-Coaque, as they bear splendid regalia announcing their rank and status. This reconstruction is based on a ceramic figure which was found in San Isidoro (Manabi): A seated lord wears spectacular ear ornaments, a headdress of sea snails, and a collar made of green stones. He bears a lime flask in one hand and, in the other, a spatula. These were the implements of coca-chewing, a prerogative of Andean rulers in rites performed at specified times.

Barra Honda Shamaness

In the Late Period IV (ca. 300 – 500 A.D.) a ceramic type called Guinea Incised was spread in the area of the Tempisque Basin. Some examples display human figures arrayed as bats, or are costumed as alligators. They are often interpreted as shamans/shamanesses impersonating powerful animals of the tropical forest. The painting shows an alligator shamaness in the caverns of Barra Honda, Tempisque Basin, Guanacaste, which today is a National Park. The prototype of the mask can be seen on a pedestal bowl done in the Guinea Incised style, and also on zoomorphic vessels from Nosara. Jade jewelry like the bar pectoral was inspired by Maya bar pectorals. Quantities of jade material were imported from the Motagua Valley, Guatemala, and, as we know so far, there were several routes from Guatemala to Costa Rica.

Burial of a Chief
Like the Muisca the chiefs of ancient Panama tended to achieve a golden appearance by using large-scale objects. In the cultural area of Gran Coclé which less or more coincides with the modern-day Panamanian province of Coclé goldsmiths are thought to have begun practicing their craft during the fifth century A.D. and are known to have worked until the time of the contact (Wardwell 1968; Bray 1992). The largest ornaments in this area come from Sitio Conte site and are cuffs, large disk pectorals (patenas, chaguales) - some of them originally attached to cloth and helmets (Lothrop 1937, vol. 1). Here, a deceased ruler is adorned by his wife preparing him to start his last journey.

I like your paintings.
They remind me of the Adam Hook paintings that are displayed on so many Mesoamerica related websites.  
Do you do this for a living ? Were your paintings commissioned ?

I’m motivated by the greatness of these cultures. So far, I haven’t thought about commissions, but I'm open to everything.

I just want to thank you for your art, and research. I'm Peruvian, and I've never seen such wonderfully detailed art of what the indigenous culture was like. I'm especially grateful for the links you provide to each piece containing research about the culture. This means so much to me you're sharing this art, and I look forward to seeing more.

Thank you for commenting and for your kindness. Your comment nails the aim of my paintings: to reconstruct according the scientific evidence. I really appreciate it. 

It's on me to thank. Peruvian cultures were so impressive and it is their knowledge, achievements and aesthetics which provide the base of my paintings.

Again thanks a lot. A
lways great to receive such words.
