This fantastic little figure stands only 5 1/2" in height by 3 1/2" in width but he displays great attitude! He is intact save for a very small area of restoration to the tip of one wing of his avian headpiece. He is the Maya wind god from Mexico and dates Ca. 400 - 860 A.D. The whistle emits a mid-pitch pleasing tone. The rounded face with extended cheeks identifies him as the wind god along with his massive head piece in the form of a large raptor perched atop his head and his bow shaped ornament attaching the massive bird trails down his back. The piece has numerous dendrites attesting to his great antiquity. One of those ancient pieces with great charm and presence. Ex: Scottsdale Arizona Gallery.
