Massive Costa Rican Stone Trophy Head

14423. Massive Costa Rican Stone Trophy Head

Atlantic Watershed Zone, Ca. 1000 to 1200 AD.

Meticulously carved from dense, sturdy volcanic rock, this male head of large solid mass has a tight fitted cap, large prominent nose and smooth idealized almond shaped eyes. This was not broken off of a larger statue, but rather carved as a head and neck in and of itself.

Szie 10-1/4 inches (26cm) H. Weight 26 pounds.

Provenance: Ex Collection of Raymond Enkeboll California.
See a similar example in Seeing with New Eyes, Highlights of the Michael C. Carlos Museum Emory University by R. Stone Miller, no.308.

Very fine example.
