Pre-columbian Costa Rican Bird Mace Head

Lot 43: Pre-columbian Costa Rican Bird Mace Head

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Pre-columbian Ceremonial Mace Head from Guanacaste/Nicoya, Costa Rica, ca. 1000-1500 A.D. A very nice example carved in a white stone in the form of a bird. Choice condition. This little example would have been a child's burial piece, maybe even a toy while living. Chances are, it's purely votive to a child's burial. That's when you see all these little miniatures in cultures. They're children's toys or a votive burial item to a small child. Very rare to find so small.
