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 beautifully crafted, almost 1¼ pound bronze circlet (97.56HD) was found during the Russian occupation in the ancient oasis kingdom of Bactria located in the deserts of north Afghanistan and now known as BMAC (Bactria-Margiana Archaeological Complex). Heavily patinated and encrusted with copper salts, it is a spectacular example of the early bronze worker's art. Dating c.2500-1500BC, and almost certainly too heavy to have been worn as a bracelet, the ends are formed into 'dragon heads' (pos...
