Description
Since the dawn of time, horned humans have had magical, supernatural powers. In Mesoamerican art, horns frequently denote a shaman, a magic man, the intermediary between our world and that of the spirits. This fellow seems to wear his horns on his hat, as if to say that he is only a shaman part of the time, that he has a completely different existence as an ordinary person. - (PF.0546)
