Nota a catalogo

These effigy figures from the Diquís region show the influence of the large stone sculpture from Colombia's San Agustín region. The N-shaped crossed fangs are a characteristic of the monumental, rounded figures.
Cf. Jones, Kan and Snarskis (1981: cat. nos. 246, 247), for other animals.
