Details

Exploring the mystery of the Olmec heads, Morneo crafts a compelling mask based on pre-Hispanic monuments. Discovered in San Lorenzo and Tres Zapotes, Veracruz and in La Venta, Tabasco, the 17 colossal heads show distinct features and are thought to portray individual leaders. Each one weighs tons, making them some of the best known examples of Olmec art. The Mexican artisan works in papier-maché, crafting and painting the signature mask by hand to suggest the textures of stone.
