Description: This striking figure of a priest with arms held outward from the body in a presentational gesture, his right hand holding a ritual object, perhaps a rattle, dons a complexly faceted jaguar headdress surmounted by multiple loops, his facial features accentuated by black applied bitumen (chapapote) pigment, the earrings with a tooth-like appendage below a jaguars toothy open mouth. His mid-section is adorned with straps and protective decorations similar to the sleeves above a knotted bow. The necklace appears to have fragmented its medallion. The trappings hang down to the shoulders, and the robe hangs down to the base of the feet. The price on this figure has recently been significantly reduced.
