White Jade Mask Olmec Style, Mexico

About

White jade mask is an original Olmec’s style artifacts. Original white jade. Good conditions. Provenance: Private collection, Italy. Very brilliant and ancient manufacture representing a small Jade mask realized in a typical Olmecs Style. Jade is a particularly precious material and it was used as a mark of rank by the ruling classes. By 1500 BC early Olmec sculptors mastered the human form. The Olmec fashioned votive axes in the form of figures carved from jade, jadeite, serpentine and other greenstones. The figures have a large head and a small, stocky body that narrows into a blade shape. They combine features of a human and other animals, such as jaguar, eagle or toad. The mouth is slightly opened with a flaring upper lip and the corners turned down. This object is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any object in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist, designer or craftsman who has died requires a license for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the license according to the final destination of the object.
