This distinctive Maya monkey/man head fragment comes from Mexico and dates Ca. 100 - 860 A.D. The figure measures 2 1/2" in height by 2 1/2" in width and comes complete with a custom metal stand which makes the overall height 6 3/4" in overall height. The face has huge striking coffee bean eyes, a compact incised head piece, and large ear spools. His nose is long and elegant. His mouth and nostrils are deeply incised. The detailing is superb for a piece of this nature.
