This standing figure is so abstract that its vitality
as well as its beauty should judge it. Eyes,
mouth, nose and body definitions are merely
suggested by wide or narrow groves. This
sculpture has an inherent energy independent of
what it represents. The way the artist conveyed
this energy was by suggesting rather than
imitating reality. This way of conveying energy
became unique to this area of ancient Meso-
America referred to as Mezcala. It has its own
unique language of space and monumental form.
The language and energy of this standing figure
comes across with such force that it summons
our undivided attention.
