Description

An important Veracruz head from Mexico, ca. 600-900 A.D. This monumental size head would have been part of an incensario figure dedicated to the god Chaac. The realistic expression on the face is striking and most likely depicts and actual individual. He is depicted wearing a large headdress of the god Chaac. Remains of stucco are still present and the eyes are highlighted with black bitumen. See last picture for size comparison next to a 19? figure. The original figure would have been massive and quite an important piece.
18" in height.
