An excellent Maya ballgame hacha from Guatemala, ca. 250 – 600 AD. This masterfully sculpted example is 6” high and is carved from a greenish-gray hardstone. It depicts one of the monkey deities, Hun-Batz or Hun-Chowen, the step-brothers of the Hero Twins, known as patrons of the arts. The carving is beautifully detailed and well-polished, showing good mineral deposits. Mounted on custom stand.
