Valdivia very slight wedge shape Stone Figure, narrower at top, having 2 inverted U grooves for the eyes, joined in the classical style of these pieces that are the earliest and most expressive forms of art from South America and the world. A horizontal groove for the neck and 2 curved grooves for the bottom.The pure and minimalist features of the eyes, neck, and legs make this a remarkable work of art very similar than the modern pieces made by Brancusi and Henry Moore. This is the pureness at its most. An original collector’s piece in a world of fakes and forgery pieces of this type that haunt the market these days. The authenticity of the piece is undoubted and the manganese dioxide marks are beautiful and proof of its authenticity. Mounted.
