    i did not believe this could possibly be a real pre-colombian piece until i got it home and examined it more closely and now, i'm convinced that it is. what do you folks think? it's 22 inches high. it looks very similar - Mayan, i think. Maybe Aztec? I need to do a lot of research on it. I picked it up at a 2nd hand shop in Berkeley today.

    is there a category for pre-columbian artifacts?

      i think this might be Chancay or Chimu from Peru.

      i believe it's from the Puruha culture of the Ecuadorian / Colombian border.

      You sure did find one...Exactly like yours!!! Nice research. I love it when it happens like that. So do you still have it? Bet it fetched a bit more than the other smaller one!!!
