Standing Figure - Mezcala

This character stands in front of us. The silhouette is stylized so much that the shapes become geometric. The top of the head is deliberately left raw. The face is animated by some features such as raised eyebrows that suggest the depth of the look, the thin edge of the nose emerging from the encounter of flat cheeks and the mouth created by a simple notch in the stone. The head is distinguished from the body by a wide neck. The drooping shoulders that look on the arms glued along the torso while the forearms, sculpted in relief, are brought back in front of the belly. The legs are quite short, proportionally to the rest of the figure, and detached from each other by a deep cut
