This beautiful rendition of the Aztec corn god comes from Mexico and dates C.A. 1300 - 1521 A.D. He stands 6" in height by 3 1/2" in width. He is mounted on a heavy museum quality metal stand and it is included in the sale. He has a highly ornate head piece crowned with feathers, a large circular neck piece, ear spools, arm bands, and he is clutching an ear of corn in his left hand. A remnant of the original red pigment is evident on his face. He was damaged in transit and has been professionally reassembled from three original pieces...no new plaster! Aztec artifacts of any sort are few and far in between. Provenance: An old Sante Fe, New Mexico private collection. A COA will be provided.
