Authentic Maya Effigy Piece

Found Copan, Honduras, Classic Period, ca. 200-600 AD

Terra-cotta, 3 inches x 1.5 inches. Our best educated guess is that this lovely little curiosity came from an ornate insense burner used for ceremonial purposes.

We've studied this bit for many hours and it's difficult to say for sure what it may represent - a stylized bird's head, an "Old God"?

Either way, it will make an excellent addition to your 'Cabinet of Curiosities'.
