This extremely rare and stunning museum quality Olmec standing figure is made from beautiful Olmec blue true jadeite. It measures a whopping 8 3/8" long and 2 1/2" at the shoulders. The head is just shy of 3". It dates from 1200-600BC. It is the definition of Olmec classic with the elongated head and were-jaquar mouth. It has incising along the chest, left leg and left cheek. The back is quite unusual and rare in that the head shows the figure in transformation into an avian form. The beak is clearly prominent and the ear holes become the eyes. The left arm at the wrist has been broken off and reattached. No other repair or restoration of any kind. This is truly one of the finest standing Olmec figures to ever come on the market.
