Olmec Transformational Dwarf, Mexico, ca 1000 B.C.

In ancient Mexico dwarfs were considered to possess special powers.  This Olmec transformational figure holds his hands over is ears in a rare yet diagnostic Olmec stance.  The downturned gums reference the were-jaguar ; perhaps the subject of the transformation.  Sculpted from volcanic stone.  5 1/4 inches height.  

cf. The Olmec World, page 216, for the type.
