This Maya urn head fragment comes from Mexico and dates Ca. 100 - 860 A.D.It measures 2 1/2" in height by 2 1/2" in width and includes a heavy custom made metal display stand. The figure is fabricated from an orange/brown clay. He wears a rounded head piece with a wide band circling the lower section. The eyes are closed as if he is in a deep trance. His mouth is almond shaped and raised and incised. The overall impression is one of serenity and deep contemplation...an excellent addition to a varied collection of artifacts from The Americas.
