Teotihuacan Black Stone Mask Amulet Set in Pendant - FJ.3102,Origin: Mexico,Circa: 300 AD to 600 AD,Catalogue: V3,Collection: Pre-Columbian,Style: Teotihuacan,Medium: Stone, Gold. This exquisite amulet echoes the larger stone masks which were produced in the workshops of classical Teotihuacan. Carved with remarkable sensitivity, it perhaps is the effigy of an actual person, meant to be worn as a remembrance. When we wear it today, we cannot help but imagine the individual who wore it so many centuries ago, in a world very different from our own. Such a token reminds us of human bonds that transcend time, of emotions and feelings that are common to all mankind.
