The dense stone sculpture stands to attention as if in preparation for something. The face seems pensive with the eyes and mouth closed. The hair is carved in a neat fashion with only simple lines delineating the strands. In his sculpted hands, he holds a carved mask depicting a jaguar head. Its fierceness and prowess is transferred over to this man, giving him the cunning and skill of a sleek animal. Such imagery can only deter an enemy who would see such a thing, thus providing comfort to those who seek security within its stone and its strength. - (PF.4199)
