Mezcala Stone Idol

Call for pricing.

Guerrero, situated in the south of Mexico comes from the Spanish word “warrior”. Existence of the first humans in this area date back to approx. 20,000 years ago. There is some belief that the Olmecs were the first civilization that moved to this area and had a profound influence on the Mezcala. They developed a unique stone-centered art style, based on the use of an ax used for hafting.

Hafting is a process by which an artifact, often bone, metal, or stone, is attached to a handle or strap. It is also used to carve.
