Mayan Warrior Hacha, Vera Cruz, Mexico circa 450 AD
A Mayan Hacha in the form of a warrior with a jaguar headdress emerging from the mouth of an Eagle. The dual imagery suggests that the human figure is in a acrobatic position with his legs bent over his head. Interestingly, the jaguar is leaning over the forehead with a curled upraised tail. Rare and choice. 10 1/2" height x 10 1/4" width.
