This Maya denizen of the dark comes from Mexico and dates C.A. 100 - 860 A.D. The representation of the bat depicts him with large round ears, a large crest from the back of his head to his brow ridge, a pronounced snout, heavy lidded brows, and wide open round eyes. He is impressive but not frightening! The head measures 2 1/2" in height by 3" in width. When mounted on the heavy custom metal base the total height is 7" overall. A great piece for the sophisticated collector or the beginner...and the price is right.
