Sculpture of an Eagle Dancer - PF.0758, Origin: Eastern Mexico, Circa: 600 AD to 900 AD, Dimensions: 7" (17.8cm) high, Collection: Pre-Columbian, Medium: Terracotta. Since the dawn of time, man has yearned to fly, to soar with the birds. This magnificent image of a ceremonial dancer seems to sum up that desire. Dressed as a fierce eagle, he stands with arms spread, as if ready to leap from a precipice and sail out among the eagle's soaring grace. The flight is only in our imaginations.
