      Believe it could be a contemporary depiction of the Mayan figure Huitzilopochtli? A sculptural piece intended to be enjoyed as a piece of art...Just a thought -nice in any event.

      i agree with Roycroft. i think it's from the Andes.

      So y’all think this is probably not very old because of the over all good condition and that it was created using a mold process? Colors of paint and method of applications ?

      the fact it has no markings on it ..could be anything from a street vender from mexico to south america or a shop up here that inported them up here.. would be my guess..good luck ..

      You might take a look at the NOVICA site - this is an example that to my eye is similar to yours both in terms of subject and style of crafting.
