Description
Wearing an elaborate feathered headdress, some jewelry and little else, this abstract woman sits cross-legged in prayer. Centuries ago, some person placed her to worship at the shrine of a Mayan god the rest of the world had long forgotten. This orant has faithfully kept her part of the bargain, and in her presence we are in direct touch with that individual who chose her as a stand-in for all eternity. - (PF.1075)
