Description
There is a surreal air about this figure, who seems to come from another world completely. His padded armor most probably identifies him as a participant in the ritual ballgame, with a costume designed to intimidate the opposition. Even after all these centuries, the psychological advantage is most effective--we can hardly take our eyes off him. - (PF.1051)
