The world is entrusted with many secrets. Who actually built Stonehenge? How were Egyptian mummies preserved? Time has erased the reasons, the wherefores and the how’s and left behind some wondrous mysteries. Gazing at this powerful figure we are struck with yet another ancient secret. This female sculpture from Nayarit is one of two styles found in the region. The first is the classic Nayarit style and the second is the "Chinesco" style. Excavators uncovered countless pieces in this particular style of sculpture and were confused as to its strong Oriental look, hence, the classification "Chinesco." Could it have been possible that an Asian culture crossed the seas thousands of years ago and settled in Mexico? What has become of them? No records have yet been uncovered to explain who these ancient people were. But, they have left behind a fantastic legacy. - (PF.2813)
