Guerrero Mezcala Stone Axe God - Type M-10
Item Details
Description
**First Time At Auction**

Pre-Columbian, Guerrero, Mexico, Mezcala, ca. 400 to 100 BCE. A hand-carved and string-cut carved stone anthropomorphic figure. The figure has a dramatically tapered head, delineated legs and torso, a furrowed brow, and parted lips, all done via the string-cut technique. Carved from a mottled blue-gray stone, this figure has simple yet eloquent features which demonstrate the elementary manner in which ancient artisans conveyed the human body. Size: 3.65" H (9.3 cm); 4" H (10.2 cm) on included custom stand.

For similar examples see, Carlos Gay, "MEZCALA: Ancient Stone Sculpture from Guerrero, Mexico"; Balsas Publications, Geneva, 1992, pp. 193, 199.
