Description
This standing figure is so abstract that it should be judged by its vitality as well as its beauty. Eyes, mouth and body definitions are merely suggested by 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 regardless of its size. The golden hues of color in this mottled stone create a magical aura of divinity, as well. The language and energy of this standing figure comes across with such force that it summons our undevoted attention. - (PF.0234)
