Seller: 4636al (218) 98%, Location: Saint Petersburg, Florida, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 172144427019 A beautiful Pre Columbian ceremonial metate stone sculpture from Costa Rica. A ritual metate is an "art tool," a practical useful grinding surface transformed into an artistic and symbolic object. An object useful in life is made better so as to be useful in the afterlife. As a metate transforms grain into food, the ritual metate transforms the user from the human to the animal spirit and/or moves the user from the visible to the mythological world.This piece has been in my private collection for 35 years. I purchased it in NY at the Spencer Norton Gallery many years ago. The sculpture measures 34" long, 12" high, 17" wide. There are several professionally applied repairs to the item. See photos. Please let me know if you have any questions. Condition: GOOD, Material: Stone
