Lot 429, Auction 10/29/2018: Three Guerrero Mezcala Stone Objects

Pre-Columbian, Guerrero Mexico, ca. 300 BCE. A pair of greenstone and one black stone objects, all shaped like proto examples of the famous hand axe figures from this area but with highly abstract shapes and little to demonstrate their meaning. The most triangular has a tiny drill mark on one side; all have singular large grooves around their middles. These may be test pieces for more complex sculptures. Size of largest: 3.25" W x 5.5" H (8.3 cm x 14 cm)

Condition: Two have rough breaks, seemingly ancient in nature, to one end, as shown.

Provenance: Ex-Paul Simon collection, Taos, NM acquired before 1985

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
