The late Dr. Allen Heflin assembled a large and exceptional collection of Precolumbian molds while working in Mexico from 1946-1962. He attributed this one (AXH1451R2N3) to the Aztecs from the Valley of Mexico (so-noted in black ink on the outside surface of the mold). Made from fired clay, the mold was used to make a number of solid clay female figural casts that perhaps served as either religious or fertility icons. The silvery cast shown (made by HD Enterprises) was formed by squeezing alumin...
