DescriptionHuastec Stone Fragmentary Sculpture
C. 800-1200 AD
White Hard Stone
13" Tall x 3½" Wide x 6½" Deep
The stone fragment is broken in ancient times, possibly from volcanic activity, possibly through random tribal sacking and pillaging, and shows a human figure seated and clinging to a pole. The support curves and creates a spot for the figure to rest upon, his feet on the side of a cylindrical post, defined buttocks exposed, a band incised at the waist, and the back arching with the rounded shoulders hunched forward as the arms reach out clinging to the object. The top of the post appears to have been intentionally rounded off in ancient times and the head is gone from damage. The carving has strong ancient weathering, having never been cleaned, and probably served as a much taller boundary marker.
