This standing figure is so abstract that it should
be judged by its vitality as well as its beauty.
Eyes, mouth, nose and body definitions are
merely suggested by wide or narrow groves. This
sculpture has an inherent energy independent of
what it represents. The way the artist conveyed
this energy was by suggesting rather than
imitating reality. This way of conveying energy
became unique to this area of ancient
Mesoamerica referred to as Mezcala. It has its
own unique language of space and monumental
form. The language and energy of this standing
figure comes across with such force that it
summons our undivided attention.
