A beautifully carved Olmec pendant with delicately drilled eyes, nose and mouth. The head shows “cranial modification” and the cleft upper left suggests the transformation into Jaguar. Driled four times on the referse for suspension. 1 7/8″ height x 1 3/4″ width x 7/8″ depth. Ex Collection Perla Cosme acquired by descent in the 1970’s.
