DescriptionTwo Veracruz Head Fragments
C. 500-800 AD
Buff Terra Cotta
5¾" Tall and 5¼" Tall
The solid facial fragment of a grinning male wearing a wide two tiered headdress with high cheek bones, large earflares, and thick extended lips. This, reglued between the headdress and forehead and minor losses to the lips. A heavy example from a solid body large figurine. The hollow hand modeled face stares upward, his brows bulging and with strong cheek bones, sturdy chin, realistic nose, and wearing a banded headdress. Example would have been a life portrait of a real person, perhaps a priest or scribe and would have been fragmented from a much larger standing figure. The two examples each mounted on dark wood bases.
Estimate: $800 - $1,200.
