Seller: rodrogrs (759) 100%, Location: New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 122239271365 Here is a fine museum-quality carved stone figure of abstract form.Skillfully albeit minimally carved, this sculpture is geometric and abstract, yet instantly recognizable as a direct and powerful representation of a human figure unencumbered by extraneous details.This variegated jade-green meta-diorite figure, unmounted, is 4” (10.1cm) tall x 1.5” (3.8cm) wide x 1.25” (3.1cm) with a smooth, lustrous surface and evidence of ancient use as a functional tool atop the figure's head. Includes display stand as shown. This museum-grade figure conforms to the shape, style, and characteristics of Type M-4 of Carlo Gay's Mezcala figure classification. Although impeded with primitive tools, Mezcala artisans created highly stylized stone figures and modified celts, as is clearly evident in this anthropomorphic exemplar. Without cracks, scratches, repairs or restoration, this lustrous and magnificently abstract work of ancient sculpture is in excellent condition.Polished Stone Anthropomorphic CeltMezcala River Region, Guerrero, MexicoLate Pre-Classic Pd., C.300 B.C.E.
