Throckmorton Fine Art

Teotihuacan
Ceremonial Mask
250-450 CE
Granite
H: 10 3/4 in. W: 11 in.

 

Though they vary in size, Teotihuacán masks are highly standardized: the top of the head is always squared off; the face is trapezoidal with squared ears, marked brow lines, open eyes, a prominent nose, and an open mouth with full lips. This spectacular example, a portrait mask is quite large, has a wonderful patina, and in almost pristine condition.
