55mm x 53mm x 20mm Strange piece for you scholars of antiquities to ponder. Initially this celadon nephrite jade head appears a classic Moche Indian piece. Upon closer inspection there are Chinese style holes cut into the back to be worn. Unusual for an Meso-American piece. Both these holes & the ear holes show signs of extensive use. There are also slight gully's or wear marks down the back that nest two fingers between the upper knuckles perfectly. See pictures. Our research indicates that was a ceremonial piece worn on the hand as pictured, & mounted with hide or gut string. I do know enough about early tooling to note it's authenticity. It is an old piece from an old collection, & stands up under microscopic inspection. From what I understand, this would have been worn by a high ranking tribal official, priest, even chieftain. A very, very, rare piece. Some minor wear or damage to the nose.
