On the threshold between two traditions, the new Teotihuacan style emerges. A wealth
of details such as an overall naturalistic triangulation of the face with proportional
forehead. Sunken almond shaped eyes, fleshy nostrils with better defined nasal labial
folds. Deeply shaped mouth, complimented by a Cupid's bow feature. Restrained ear
flanges with top perforated holes. Rare.
The roots of the style, the stone and the workmanship are still manifestly Chontal.
Middle phase Chontal. 300 - 100 B.C. Mexico. Measures 5.25”/13.33 cm H, 4.5”/11.43
cm W, 2”/5.08 D. Fine example.
