10 ½” in height and modeled in the round, this stone carving (AXH1462) was found in Vera Cruz and was attributed by its finder, the late Dr. Allen Heflin, to the Huasteca dating c.900-1300AD.

In overall good condition (I’d rank it a 7), it has been partially restored and the monkey replaced and rebuilt where damaged.
