Stone Costa Rican Female Figure

She is a volcanic stone female figure from the Atlantic Watershed zone of Costa Rica. The figure is not Venus de Milo but, like that lady, she has lost her arms...and one leg and half of the other leg. She also isn't quite as beautiful but she has been around for a long time, viewing her world through her "coffee bean" eyes. She is somewhat unusual because, unlike most Pre-Columbian female figures from Costa Rica, her hands are on her stomach, not on her breasts. She has long striated hair reaching half way down back to her waist. She may not be beautiful, but she has a real presence and sits comfortably on the wooden stand we had built for her.

H. 14 ⅝"
