Description
Engagingly modern and strikingly primitive, this early Mayan stone sculpture embodies a spirit that transcends time and place. Deftly carved from volcanic stone, its abstracted form captures the essence of the human figure, eliminating detail, highlighting the essentials. Though the original function of this extraordinary figure may elude us, we are certain that his compelling spirit is not elusive, for it radiates a power and energy that is all pervasive. - (PF.2561)
