Represented as the seeds or fruits of the human life process, trophy heads taken in battle completed the agricultural life cycle of the Meso- Americans. This warrior has an oval face with a protruding chin and lips that hint a smile. Perhaps the warrior has been rewarded in the afterlife as he has served a great purpose as an offering to the gods. - (PF.2727)
