Valdivia Small Stone Figure. III Millenium B.C.
Valdivia Stone Figure
Valdivia flat slab-like carved Stone Human Figure in the classical style of these pieces that are the earliest and most expressive forms of art from South America and the world. Two inverted U’s for the eyes (grooves), joined by a horizontal groove for the neck and horizontal one with a vertical descender for the feet. 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 because of the excellent manganese dioxide marks that proofs its authenticity. Mounted.
