Beautiful carved highly abstracted stone figure rendered with the most minimal cut outs to suggest the figural form! Highly ritualistic work of art, no doubt used in a ceremony for the Gods. Pierced atop and worn as a talisman or amulet with magical properties. Size: 4-3/8 in H. + custom mount. Intact.
Ex Southampton NY collector Michael R., acquired by descent though family.
A nice example in an unusual stone. Compare similar examples in: Gay, Carlos MEZCALA: Ancient Stone Sculpture from Guerrero, Mexico; Balsas Publications, Geneva, 1992.
