Chipped stone eccentrics, or symbolic-shaped stone artifacts, were one of the items manufactured in the Colha (Belize) workshops. These items were not used in daily life, but were used in ritual events. This is a beautiful example of these rare artifacts. Many Mayan eccentrics have what looks like a profile of a face chipped into the artifact. This artifact has a profile of a monkey's face with a headdress, with the tip being the headdress.
I've attached an image with lighting which highlights the flake scars. I highlighted the monkey's mouth, nose, eye and ear in a side by side image. The image may be depicting one of the Mayan Monkey Gods. I will continue to list artifacts from my personal collection over the next several weeks.Unless stated otherwise, I believe that the artifacts I list are authentic.
