DescriptionGroup of Three Large Maya Earflares
Maya, Southern Lowlands
C. 400-900 AD
Various Denser Stone
Approximately 3" Wide Each
The interesting group consists of three large earflares, two being a matched set. The speckled green stone set is a denser stone with speckled white and apple green inclusions, with some ancient damage, one holding a strong polish, the other being slightly eroded. The pair would have been attached at the earlobes by having suspended counterweights suspended on the backside. The third example is a thin, well crafted flaring grayish dense stone, possibly serpentine, and holds a strong mirror-like original polish to the face. The example has some roughness at the edges, one ancient nick, else quite nice.
