DescriptionHuastec Uncompleted Stone Palma
C. 800-1200 AD
8" Tall x 4¾" Wide
The carving is formed with a circular hump to one side, a fine human face on the other, and abstract torso design below. The face shows a round faced human with high arching brow, incised hair, flaring nostrils, and open mouth. One eye appears closed and the other is open. The stone stands upright and this, combined with the curving bulges below the head, give the impression that, possibly, the carving is an incomplete palma.
