    It has been identified iirc.

    Maybe Pre-Columbian my guess

    Thanks for that link, just placed my order.

    I have a few Toltec, Aztec, and Mayan Artifacts

    Actually it's not Xipe Totec. That was our first thought, when we discovered a replica on ars mundi:
    Sites-ArsMundi-Site

    But when you read the description of this statue in the National Museum of Anthropology you see that it represents an Aztec noble.

    There is more info also about the other desk artifacts on my thread on COW. I have nearly finished it and we have tracked down nearly all pieces.
    Maybe I should post the whole thing here on RPF, too.

    With this and the Osiris Urn in another thread, it feels like a bunch of archaeologically-themed props right now. A trend I like!
