Maya Stone Architectural Element,

 

12932. Maya Stone Architectural Element,

Late Classic circa 600 to 900 AD.

A unique composition, the upper section of a human figure is emerging, one arm bent at elbow close to body. He has a yoke over his chest, perhaps preparing for a ballgame or related ritual. The block may have been reused at a later point as it is documented that the Aztec looted the site and took stone blocks to incorporate into their own temples. There also may be signs of water erosion. Size 22 inches (56cm) x 8-3/4 inches (22.2cm)H x 15 inches(38cm) W. Nice ancient surface deposits attest to the authenticity. Old NY Drs. Collection acq 1970s
