Copal resin. (3 pcs.)
Mezcala figure in cast stone.

The corn seeds come from my garden. I grow the same beautiful ears year after year then dry them to preserve their awesome beauty. The copal resin comes from a market I visited in Tlaxcala, Mexico. it is used as incense today as it was in ancient times.

This intriguing cast stone replica is from a mold taken directly from an original Mezcala stone figure. It has the look and feel of smooth stone and fits comfortably in your hand. This effigy figure is an interesting collectible that can be appreciated as a: votive offering ... garden spirit ... worry doll ... teaching tool ... decorative element.

MEZCALA ART of ANCIENT MEXICO - This art is characterized by an extreme economy of means and forms of expressive vigor. These works fascinate not only by their simplicity, which is close to that of Cycladic art ... but also because they are the most notable product of this culture. One of the regions which gave birth to the most accomplished and perfect sculptural art was the Mezcala area. Located in the mountainous valleys in the state of Guerrero, Mexico ... Mezcala art is difficult to date owing to the almost total absence of scientific excavations but is estimate at 200 B.C. - 500 A.D.

This item is a cast copy and NOT the original. The figurine you receive may have a slight variation in color from that pictured but it will be an exact replica from the same mold. Although this is a copy of the original, it is not intended to deceive and would be recognized as such.
