Description: This head resting on folded arms is what remains of a once larger figurine. Broken in ancient times just below the chin, the stone was re-carved and used as an amulet. The head is incised with exceptionally well-defined, angular features such as slit eyes surrounded by a wraparound mask-like composition, broad forehead, and protruding jawline, and takes on a peculiarly serene expression. The suspension holes were drilled horizontally just below the notched hands. The entire figure would have been a nice size amulet.

Condition Report: Very good and mounted on a custom made base

Notes: 98425

Dimensions: Height 1 3/8"

Date: Dominican Republic, Taino, c. AD 1000 - 1500
