Mexican Obsidian & Sterling Silver Aztec Mayan "Chac-Mool" Sculpture

This sculpture was made in Mexico and has the hallmarks: BGA MEXICO JFF 925. The dimensions are 5-1/4" L x 1-1/2" W x 3-1/2" H. Made of solid natural volcanic obsidian glass with solid sterling silver accents. Very nice piece to add to any collection!

The Chac-Mool depicts a human figure in a position of reclining with the head up and turned to one side, holding a tray over the stomach. The meaning of the position or the statue itself remains unknown. Chac-Mool statues are found in or around temples in Toltec and other post-Classic central Mexican sites, and in post-Classic Maya civilization sites with heavy Toltec influence, such as Chichen Itza. The ancient name for these type of sculptures is unknown. The name Chac-Mool is attributed to Augustus Le Plongeon, who excavated one of the statues at Chichen Itza in 1875. Le Plongeon named it Chaacmol, which he translated from the Maya as "thundering paw." Le Plongeon claimed the statue was a depiction of a former ruler of Chichen Itza. Le Plongeon's sponsor, Stephen Salisbury of Worcester, Massachusetts, published Le Plongeon's find, but revised the spelling to "Chac-Mool."
