Lot 0062
Pre-Columbian, Mexico, Guerrero, Chontal, ca. 400 BCE. Chontal greenstone figure with oversized head donning a pointed headdress (a sign of shaman status), its expressive visage with bold features, a deeply undercut neck, projecting lower jaw, its body with an elongated torso, delineated legs, and arms held rigidly to sides (as if standing at attention). Carved from an inherently beautiful stone of forest green hues, would make an impressive addition to any collection. Custom museum-quality stand. Size: 2.375" W x 6.875" H (6 cm x 17.5 cm); 7.5" H (19 cm) on stand

Provenance: Ex-Peter Arnovick Collection, San Francisco, CA
