In Ancient Costa Rica, large jade pendants were worn as emblems of rank and authority as well as talismans of protection by chieftains, warriors, and shamans. This superb example of dark green jade depicts a man crowned with two alligator heads standing atop another animal. The detailed sculptural rendering has a powerful expression that captivates the beholder. - (PF.2810)
