    Hey everyone, found this creepy looking statue by the dumpster in my apartment complex today....and of course i had to take it lol. Anyone out there know what this is? I thought maybe some sort of incent holder? The face is really throwing me off. I saw an incent statue a long time ago with a circle of characters with faces like this. Hopefully its not haunted lol. I like the color patterns! 20200329_195722_compress80.jpg 20200329_195818_compress51.jpg 20200329_195930_compress26.jpg 20200329_195755_compress82.jpg 20200329_200005_compress3.jpg

    This is a broken Manuel Felguerez sculpture. Mexican, desirable if not busted!

    The one I have, mother and child, is signed.

    Powerful hand sculpted burnished clay figures made from the distinctive "barro negro" of Lake Patzcuaro.

    Actually, it is really cool.

    Scott? Just one little observation...why is that sculpture "creepy" but other faces in your world aren't interpreted as such? :cool:

    The artist was good on body art and terrible at faces. That face reminds me of Odo on Deep Space Nine.

    This reminds me of the first scene of a Law and Order SVU. Innocent dude minding his own business dumpster diving and happens open the aftermath of a brutal kidnapping. Baby ripped right out of mother’s arms. Mother left for dead.
