Description
Long held in the ancient world as a symbol of nobility, power and perhaps fertility, the carved stone axe, or Celt, is one of the most beautiful art forms known to man. Here we encounter a Mezcala carved stone axe that has been masterfully converted into a dynamic, human form with just a few carefully placed string-saw cuts. Polished to a high luster, the figure radiates a primal energy that speaks directly to our 20th century tastes and sensibilities. When this figure was created, it held a prominent and meaningful position in Mezcala culture. Today, its meaning and importance is no less diminished, for this potent figure forms a tangible link between us and our ancient and spirited past. - (PF.2657)
