Mesoamerican (Veracruz) Figurine Fragment

Mesoamerican (Veracruz) Figurine Fragment


This ceramic head fragment depicts facial features and a tiered headdress. Figures of this type are typical of Post-Classical figurines from Central México, potentially Veracruz on the Gulf of México. This area was a hub of ceramic production, particularly of figurines that were either hand-modeled or molded, though this fragment is likely made from stone.
