Ça 600-900 AD

The complete figure has been molded. Veracruz smiling heads are frequently made separately from the figures and joined before firing. This figure appears to be intact. He is shown smiling with his arms raised and outstretched. He wears a double strand necklace with pendant and a representation of ankle bells on each leg. He does not appear to have been the first casting from his mold.
