LOCATION Found by Maler lying on its face near the northern edge of the South Plaza and northeast of Structure A-3. Reset by the Peabody Museum facing east as indicated by the butt, which was found in situ.

CONDITION Broken at the level of the figure's toes (repaired before re-erection). The carved surface is in near pristine condition. The shaft shows a flaw at the top.

MATERIAL Very hard limestone.

SHAPE Tapers towards the base, but whereas the right-hand side bulges irregularly, the left side is straight. The top is rounded. The front surface is flat, apart from a slight hollow where the pectoral is carved. The sides and back were left rough, with the left side projecting beyond the border defined at the frontal plane.
