LARGE MIMBRES STONE TURTLE EFFIGY,RARE!! C.400-1200AD

This wonderful turtle effigy measures 6 inches long, 5.5 inches wide and 3 inches tall and exhibits excellent carving and relief. The stone, which has significant wear all over, is volcanic which is used in both the Hohokam and Mimbres cultures; this example I believe is Mimbres (C. 400 - 1200AD). The detail is quite extraordinary with the protruding head, feet, side lines and the crisscross design of the shell on the back. The piece is in mint condition. A very scarce and desirable item.............. ARTIFACT AUTHENTICATION papers from Ben Stermer will be provided attesting to age and origin. (please see photo 6)
