Description
Slender and elegant, with a fashionable coiffure, this little figure represents a young aristocrat of ancient Mexico. Centuries ago, an individual perhaps not unlike this placed this clay image in a tomb to keep company with the deceased. All other clues to that ancient life have vanished, yet this charming effigy evokes a living human presence. Holding it in our hands, we communicate directly with the people who held it so long ago. - (PF.0825)
