Pair of Olmec Jade Ear Ornaments

Pre-Columbian, Mesoamerica, Olmec culture, ca. 1150 to 550 BCE. This is a pair of jade (green stone - the term is often used interchangeably) objects that were made to be worn in the ear. Later, we know that the Maya considered ear ornaments to be used as conduits for the spiritual energy that they believe flowed through the ears - so perhaps the Olmec, the Maya's predecessors, also believed this. Size of largest: .75" W x 0.45" H (1.9 cm x 1.1 cm)

Condition: Both have some age wear but are intact.

Provenance: Ex - Private W. S. collection, Los Angeles, CA
