Description
Holding objects perhaps associated with mourning, this powerful figure was buried to express his grief through eternity. Though his clothing is simple, his jewelry suggests his high status in ancient Mexican society. What holds our gaze, however, is the vivid look on his face. He seems to see beyond the tangible world to the very depths of the unknown. In all the centuries since this figure was created, man has been unable to answer the questions about life and death that he asks. We are caught up in his awed state, linked by timeless human understanding. - (PF.1351)
