Description
Small, yet powerful, this male figure has a calm, peaceful countenance. He is posed with arms crossed on his chest, which lends the figure an almost meditative state. He wears the customary breechcloth with elongated tassels. Everything about this piece is long and vertical, from the tassels, to the headdress, to the figure’s arms, legs and head. The piece balances its vertical lines with the use of round eyes and earrings. The entire piece has a beautiful symmetry that exudes serenity and peace. - (PF.2746)
