Description
Expertly carved from a single piece of volcanic rock with only the use of stone and wood tools plus abrasives, this male figure is a brilliant example of the Pre-Columbian sculptural skills of the ancient artisans from the Atlantic Watershed Zone of Costa Rica. Standing in an erect posture, the figure grasps an object in each hand, possibly a rattle. Or perhaps they are weapons, in which case this virile figure may be a warrior. Whatever his role in Ancient Costa Rican society, he clearly evinces a dynamic spirit, one that is steeped in the mysteries of an ancient, Pre-Columbian culture. - (PF.2634)
