EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases a remarkable statuette of a meditating old man from the Late Preclassic-Early Classic period in Lagunillas, Mexico. Standing at an impressive 41x26.5x24.2 cm, this clay figure is believed to represent an individual of high social hierarchy. The posture of the old man, with his legs crossed and deep in introspection, suggests a state of meditation and contemplation. This active statism reflects his ritualistic character and adds to the overall sense of profound introspection conveyed by the sculpture. Notably, he holds a small container in his right hand, alluding to the ingestion of substances possibly within a religious context. This detail hints at potential priestly functions performed by this elderly figure alongside political or social responsibilities. The elongated features and intricate details on this funerary figure highlight its ceremonial significance within Mesoamerican culture during that time period. The craftsmanship exhibited in this piece exemplifies the artistic skill prevalent throughout Mexican art history. Displayed at Museo Amparo in Puebla, Mexico, this ceramic masterpiece offers viewers a glimpse into ancient pre-Columbian traditions and ceremonies. Its presence evokes curiosity about the cultural practices surrounding burial rituals and spiritual beliefs during that era. Jean Pierre Courau's expert photography captures every nuance of this mesmerizing artwork while preserving its historical value for future generations to appreciate and study.
