Description
This unique figure has been created entirely out of one piece of stone, with a beautiful grain which makes any kind of formal decoration unnecessary. The face with the expressive eyes and prominent nose and mouth,are stylistically typical of Mayan art. However, the type of stone used and the positioning of the sculpture is extremely unique. The continuous line of the legs, which also seem to be arms draw attention to both the face and the lines which are part of the natural stone. Because this piece is so magnificent, we are drawn towards the artists ingenuity and creativity. This type of curiosity and fascination is timeless, and will undoubtedly remain so, as long as such art work is to be found and seen . - (PF.3726)
