10 ½” in height and modeled in the round, this stone carving (AXH1462) was found in Vera Cruz and was attributed by its finder, the late Dr. Allen Heflin, to the Huasteca dating c.900-1300AD. With somewhat muted features, resulting both from the fashion in which it was made and from subsequent weathering, the crested head may be a representation of the ever-popular wind god...

This semi-polished, mottled light gray and green stone bird pendant (PBF211) was found in the shaft tomb region of southern Colombia close to the border of Ecuador and is attributed to the Narino Capuli period, c.900-1400AD. Measuring 1 7/8” in length from the tip of its toucan-like beak to the tip of its rounded tail, it could easily be mistaken as jade, but with a measured specific gravity of 2.78, it is too light to be so identified. Generically still relatable to the metamorphic environmen...
