Valdivia (Chile) Figure Fragment


This fragment of a figurine is well-worn, however there are some visible features that indicate it may depict the female body. There also appears to be a headdress, and the figure has pronounced eyes and earrings that further contribute to this understanding. This fragment could be Mesoamerican, with some characteristics indicating it could originate from Valdivia in southern Chile, but this is not known for sure.
