Maya Pectoral of a Standing Lord, Honduras, ca 450 AD
An incredible Classic Maya Lord standing in a ceremonial position with his arms folded across his chest. His mouth is open showing a toothy grin and elaborate ear spools. A stylized headdress adorns the top of his head and a belt and pendants are carved around his waste. Interestingly, this is sculpted in three-dimensional style showing detailed features on the reverse. The imagery is very complex with a host of hidden deity and skeletal figures. Drilled laterally for suspension. 3 1/4" height x 1 5/8" width.
