Description: Pre-Columbian, Mexico, Guerrero, Mezcala, ca. 400 to 100 BCE. A striking Mezcala head with a dramatically pointed chin, carved from a gorgeous brownstone of an earthy, reddish sienna hue mottled with tan intrusions all over the surface, and finely string cut to create facial details. While created by the ancients of the Americas, the abstract lines and minimalist styling of this piece appeal to modern tastes as well. Custom, museum-quality stand. Lovely patina! Small suspension Size: 3" W x 3.5" H (7.6 cm x 8.9 cm)

Provenance: Ex-Paul Simon collection, Taos, NM acquired between 1960 and 1975

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.
