Comments:  This piece was probably found by Fernando Sologuren at the beginning of the last century. In 1928, Caso and Bernal (1952: 97) took pictures of the piece when it was at Mercedes Sologuren's house. At the beginning of the 1950s, the piece went to Machilda Armilia Van Rijn and then, in 1964, it was acquired by Dolores Olmedo Patio (personal communication with Patricia Van Rijn, 1999). For a similar Etla style of this period compare it with MDO 32 and MFR 12619.
Glyphs:  Glyph E "Xoo" reproduced several times in the headdress. The headdress mask corresponds to glyph U. Above the mask's nose, a jaguar's head can be seen and, above it, the glyph for corn.
