A striking Maya head and torso fragment measuring 5" in height by 3 1/2" in width from Mexico dating Ca. 100-850 A.D. The nobleman (deity?) is mounted on a museum quality metal stand and stands 7" when mounted. The figure is a pale terra-cotta in color with a rounded head piece, ear spools, nose ornamentation, and tatooing or ritual scarification on the arms. He has graceful elongated oval eyes with heavy brows. A fine addition to any collection!
