This Maya head with a smiling countenance comes from Mexico and dates C.A. 100 - 860 A.D. It measures 3" in height by 3" in width and stands a total 0f 7 1/4" when mounted on the custom metal base. The face is rounded with a slight upturned smile, a highly incised hairline, and a rounded headpiece with a circular design element in the center. It exudes a sense of tranquility and well being as opposed to many of the Maya faces portraying fierce warriors prepared for battle. An all around pleasing artifact from the distant past.
