This beautiful gray volcanic stone sculpture demonstrates the solidity of the art that was created through the Central American region. This standing female is simple in her anatomy, yet the pose that she has been given suggests purposefulness and femininity. While one hand is on her waist and the other is on her breast, her femininity is awakened, while still maintaining a sense of grace and simplicity. Though the eyes are closed, her face remains composed and complacent. Little jewelry can be found on her except for a necklace that has been carefully carved into the stone. At the same time, her hair gently cascades down her back, hair that can otherwise only be seen in a small amount on top of her head. Over the years, femininity has been portrayed in many different ways, and strength and stability are two of those ways. - (PF.4182)
