Teotihuacan Alabaster Mask
A Pre-Columbian Teotihuacan green alabaster (Tecali Stone) mask carved with parted lips, aquiline nose, deeply drilled eyes and rectangular pierced ears.
Teotihuacan was the largest city in the ancient Americas in the first millennium AD. The Teotihuacano people were extremely advanced with monumental architecture, and elaborate artwork in gold, jade, and pottery. They interacted with the Maya of the Yucatan. Teotihuacan was eventually abandoned and the area was under the control of the Aztecs when the Spanish arrived.
Formerly in an Arizona private collection.
