COSTA RICAN STONE FIGURE
DIQUIS REGION, CA. A.D. 800-1500
The flattened and stylized figure standing on a peg, with strong musculature, arms held to the sides, fingers and toes emphasized, and uplifted head with grinning mouth showing teeth, large, lunate eyes and flared nostrils; in beige sandstone.
The peg-base figures from the Diquis region are distinct from other Costa Rican sculpture styles and are frequently compared to the San Augustin carving tradition in Colombia.
