I have seen and collected many bird celts and axe-gods over the years. This one ranks near the top for the type. The quality of the carving is extraordinary and the jade material is wonderfully colorful. It is 3/5/8" long. It is from the Las Mercedes, Linea Vieja area. The blade is narrowed as well as deeply cut back at the waistline. The eyes are marked by drill pits set in a broad groove. A pair of knobs on the head resemble the local great horned owl. The beak is deeply carved and well defined. Overall one of the finest examples I have seen on the market. Comes with a laser COA from Bill Breckinridge. I purchased this piece in 2002 from Michael Robbins. Compare to current pieces on eBay and you will see this is a terrific price.
