This carved golden obsidian sculpture represents a colossal head and has a precious opal on its forehead.

The Olmec colossal heads are stone representations of human heads that were sculpted from large basalt boulders. These heads date from at least 900 BC and are a distinctive feature of the Olmec civilization of ancient Mesoamerica. They portray mature individuals with fleshy cheeks, flat noses, and slightly crossed eyes; their physical characteristics remain common among the modern inhabitants of Tabasco and Veracruz states. The backs of these monuments are usually flat. Colossal heads wear headdresses that resemble a helmet made from some kind of animal hide or cloth.
