Pre Historic Stone Effigy Figure Anasazi Hohokam Statue
All cultures of the world have left some traces of art, whether it be in pictographs, paintings, sculptures or statues.
This statue was originally found in New Mexico and is most likely of Anasazi Hohokam origin.
The figure is shown sitting on the ground, with it's knees pulled up to an elbow, which is clutching a raised arm over the figures head. If you place it flat on its side on a table, it would appear the the figure is asleep. Being that the base is flat and the figure naturally sits upright, it would be that the figure has an overall expression of woe, protection, or grief.
This is a highly interesting art sculpture, carved out of what is probably dolomitic limestone. Picture #3 has a wedge-like appearance of hematite along the outer thigh of the leg, lower foot and base.
Size: 128mm H X 50mm W X 50mm D; weight: 343 grams
