Intricate Details and Artistic Narrative of this

Majestic Mezcala Stone Head

 

Precolumbian Mezcala semiabstract stone faces represent intricately carved artifacts from the Mezcala culture, distinguished by a distinctive artistic idiom. Characterized by a fusion of realism and artistic interpretation, these stone faces intricately capture facial features in a stylized manner. Emblematic of the Mezcala civilization’s ritualistic milieu, these artifacts are a testament to this ancient Mesoamerican society’s cultural and artistic proclivities, whose cultural zenith extended from approximately 700 B.C. to 200 A.D.

This attractive head pendant is carved from a speckled dark green stone and exhibits embellished relief with semiabstract facial features. Triangular in shape with an angled top. A suspension hole was drilled in the upper rim, with an additional deep startup hole below it. Guerrero, Balsas River region, Mexico. Ca. 300 B.C.
Measures: 2.75″. Intact in excellent condition.
Provenance: W. Fiore, Westfield, NJ
