This is a stunning Mezcala anthropomorphic Axe God figure, Type M-8, carved out of gray Metadiorite stone. Its incised features and details are highlighted by grooving, making it a beautiful semi-abstract piece. The sediment deposits throughout the figure add to its charm and authenticity, as it was found as is. This piece hails from Guerrero, Mexico, and dates back to approximately 700 B.C. – 650 A.D. It measures H. 7.625”/19.37 cm and is a true testament to the ancient craftsmanship and artistic expression of the Mezcala culture.
