The Olmecs were the earliest known major civilization in Mesoamerica. They lived in the tropical lowlands of south-central Mexico.
This rare stone figure is one of the finest carvings of the dwarf type, a well-documented figural form within the Olmec corpus. The carved emblems of the harpy eagle helmet and maize symbols including the bag on his back, mark the dwarf as a semi-divine carrier of the Olmec’s most sacred crop – maize. Maize was the foundation of Olmec ideology and the basis for the creation of deities associated with water and agriculture.
