Description: Pre-Columbian, Guerrero Mexico, ca. 300 BCE. A nicely symmetrical and well-made small maskette with a drilled hole through the forehead for suspension. These stone axe figures are common from this period, representing 15-20% of all artifacts found, and are named for the Rio Mezcala (Balsas) valley where they are commonly found. The Mezcala style is known only through stone carving, which is done using strings with the aid of sandstone for abrasion. Comes with custom stand. Size: 2.7" W x 3.3" H (6.9 cm x 8.4 cm)

Provenance: EX-Peter Arnovick collection, San Francisco, CA

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
