Seller: rodrogrs (758) 100%, Location: New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 122240608036 Here is a large green stone pectoral/amulet/mask of stylized anthropomorphic form. This remarkable artwork is 4.5” (11.4cm) x 3.25” (8.2cm) x 2” (5 cm) unmounted and 5.5” (14cm) overall height, mounted on a custom-built display stand. There are two small inscriptions; ”1515” and “Guerrero” written in black ink on the reverse. Despite a bilaterally-drilled suspension perforation near the top of the head, this mask’s massive size and hefty weight of nearly 1.5 lbs (.68 kilos). makes it appear unlikely to have served as a cosmetic adornment for the living but more probably as a mortuary bundle attachment for a person of high rank. Although impeded by primitive tools, Mezcala artisans created highly stylized stone figures and masks, as is clearly evident in this impressive example. Without chips, cracks, scratches, repairs or restoration, this lustrous abstract work of ancient sculpture is in excellent condition.Polished Stone Mask/PectoralMezcala River Area, Guerrero, Mexico300 - 100 B.C.E. $50 shipping, Delivery Confirmation tracking service and insurance within continental U.S.A.
