    Hey, does this stone sculpture look Inca, or is it just a repro?? Thanks.[​IMG][​IMG] 2000640656d.jpg

    Whatever it is, looking at the base, it looks 'newly' cut......FWIW!!!

    Thanks everyone, i saw it for sale at an auction house and it was advertised as a genuine inca sculpture, so I was just curious!

    I agree, it does not look old. It may be (loosely) based on ceramic figures created by the Chancay people (Peru, 1200-1450 AD), know as cuchimilco. These often have a similar triangular face, decorated with geometric designs and hash marks. They are also often reproduced. Most of the examples I could find as illustration are without good provenance, but they will give you an idea of what I think the inspiration of your item might be:
