Seller: rodrogrs (769) 100%, Location: Merrick, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 122218897530 Here is a fascinating pre-Columbian talisman (a “magical” object considered to act as a charm that averts evil and/or brings good fortune) in the form of a stone figurine. This effigy represents Tlaloc, god of rain, fertility and water, identified by the circular rings around the eyes; he is depicted with arms held close to the body. Hands and other details are delineated with string-sawed incised lines and there is red pigment residue within the grooved depressions. This type of sculpture is called a peñate and was carved from a variegated brown stone 2” (5.1 cm) high, .75” (2 cm) wide and .5” (1.4 cm) front-to-back, with two suspension perforations on the back. Protuberant edges are smooth and rounded, indicating use and handling. This figurine is in excellent condition.

CAVEAT EMPTOR: The prospective buyer is advised to acquire New World antiquities ONLY from reputable Pre-Columbian Art specialists and pay a legitimate price for authentic antiquities with legal provenance and bona-fide guarantees of authenticity. Keep in mind that a “Certificate of Authenticity” is only as valid as the issuer’s credentials and expertise. Unrealistically low prices for forgeries, reproductions, illegal or mis-attributed artifacts offered by uninformed or venal vendors are ultimately neither true "bargains" nor prudent fiscal investments.
