figurine This piece  , a figurine from the tomb of an unknown ruler, AD 550 – 650,is from the show  “Fiery Pool:The Maya and the Mythic Sea”. Doesn’t this goat look like he is thinking?

Here a some info from the website…”Surrounded by the sea in all directions, the ancient Maya viewed their world as inextricably tied to water. More than a necessity to sustain life, water was the vital medium from which the world emerged, gods arose and ancestors communicated. Over 90 works, many never before seen, offer exciting new insights into Maya culture that focus on the sea as a defining feature of the spiritual realm and the inspiration for the finest works of art”.
