This standing man is stylized in his representation. The legs are delimited by a groove and the arms too. The forearms are in slight relief. The fingers are well marked.
The conical shaped head shows a face with a triangular nose, a mouth marked by a line and eyes treated with staking.
The whole forms a statuette of significant volume.
The Mezcala culture has developed between 400-100 BC. It is best known for her anthropomorphic statuettes ranging from the most abstract figure to figuration.
Ex-private collection, Yvelines, France.
