Product Details

Pre-Columbian Chontal seated figure from Guerrero, Mexico, ca. 300-100 BCE. An unusual but fantastic figure of an old man seated with knees held up against his chest and looking up towards the sky, hands resting on his knees. Carved from a green stone. Manganese deposits are visible all throughout the back of the piece. Rare to see deposits on stone like you would on pottery. Hard to picture but the piece is quite bulky than what is seen in the pictures.

4 5/8" in height.
