Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Portraiture in Central American Art

Two Maya heads from Salvador are reproduced in plate 111, a and b, and it will be noted that one example is almost the exact replica of the other. Other heads of this full-round type from the same region may be seen in the collections of the American Museum of Natural History. As a contrasting type, also well developed, c and (1 present two faces in rather low relief from the Toltec Period of the Valley of Mexico. How far the differences between these two types are to be explained by an actual difference in physiognomy between the natives of the two regions, the writer is not able to say. The use of these heads casts no light on the question as to whether some of them may be portraits. The Maya specimens are decorative details broken from pots, while the Toltec ones probably are parts of votive jointed dolls in which the head and torso made up a single piece. Within these types there is, of course, a certain amount of individu ality, but this would inevitably occur through slips and inequalities of workmanship.
