A place of legend and mystery, Teotihuacan is literally translated to "where people become gods". This standing figure may be a god himself. In state of meditation, it appears as though he is humming a prayer. This figure's smooth surface bears the ages of time and years of rubbing. The color green, bearing the breath of life, may have been carved specifically to represent good fortune and protection. Perhaps the owner of this precious relic used it as a good luck charm and looked up to it as an object of great reverence. - (PF.3144)
