Death Mask-Guerrero

$30.00

The Mezcala  is the name given to a Mesoamerican culture that was based in the Guerrrero  state of southwestern Mexico, in the upper Balsa River region.  The culture is poorly understood but is believed to have developed during the Middle and Late Preclassic period between 700 and 200 BC.  The culture continued into the Classic period (c.250-650 AD) when it coexisted with the great metropolis of  Teotihucan.

Mezcala-style sculpture is characterized by abstract facial features, suggested by lines and differences in texture.  The sculptural style of the Mezcala culture may have been influenced by the Olmecs.  Our mask uses the “T” form creating the eyebrows and the nose. The mask sits on a wooden base and stands about 6″H.
