Colima Jade Amulet - PF.0476,Origin: Mexico,Circa: 300 BC to 300 AD,Dimensions: 1.875" (4.8cm) high x .75" (1.9cm) wide,Collection: Pre-Columbian,Style: Colima,Medium: Jade. Centuries ago, in the vanished kingdoms of ancient Mexico, someone wore this charming amulet to bring good fortune. It shows a person- -perhaps representing the wearer himself--in an attitude of reverence before the gods. All other traces of that ancient life have been lost with time, but this talisman remains as a vital clue. To touch it or to wear it is to communicate directly with the past.
