This old Mexican Mayan head pendant is an example of the hand-carved stone mask jewelry that was popular with tourists to Mexico who wanted to bring home something with that 'ethnic' look.

It didn't get more ethnic or historic than these unique mask pieces because both the Mayans and the Aztecs made masks in the likeness of gods, animals, and humans who represented individual nobles or warriors. Masks of every kind were made for everything from religion to battle to weddings and babies, and just for the purpose of entertainment.

This pendant is made of solid brass in a distinctive tribal shape (looks a bit like an anchor). At center, is a hand-carved genuine onyx stone mask face.

Pendant measures 3 1/8 inches across by 2 1/4 inches high. It hangs from a woven cord that's 23 inches around. The hook closure is brass as are the bands securing the cord. This necklace cord appears to be original to the pendant. Necklace weighs 64.8 grams.

A very similar pendant is listed in the book...MEXICO'S MAYA JEWELRY (Volume 1) by Sandy Hargrove - page 48.

Necklace is in excellent vintage condition. The beauty of these old Mexican pieces are that no two are exactly alike. Each creation is unique and made with a passion to preserve the beauty of the 'ethnic'.
