Description
Expertly carved from a single piece of volcanic rock with only the use of stone and wood tools plus abrasives, this striking kneeling figure is a brilliant example of the Pre-Columbian sculptural skills of the ancient artisans from the Atlantic Watershed Zone of Costa Rica. Seated on his haunches, the stone figure rests his left hand on an upraised knee, while the other hand securely grasps a ceremonial cup positioned on the figure's right leg. With a facial expression befitting his ritual role, this ancient figure remains forever poised in a position of homage and respect. As we experience his commanding presence we too become respectful, treasuring this timeless work of Costa Rican sculptural art. - (PF.2632)
