puppy pugilists

The Proctor Stafford Collection, purchased with funds provided by Mr. and Mrs. Allan C. Balch (M.86.296.207) www.lacma.org

Roughly 3 x 4.5 inches in size, these two little playfighters are still full of fun.  They're a more roughhewn, mini version of the polished and personality-filled dog-shaped vessels of Western Mexico's Colima culture (roughly 200 BC - 500 AD).
