That's so cool, there's not a lot of Olmec art out there, so I'm really excited about this. Also very intrigued by the helmet. What animal is that claw from? And what source do you have for the clothes (and helmet ) if you don't mind me asking?
it's a jaguar claw. The Olmecs often depicted jaguars. In fact, the jaguar is one of the most depicted characters in Olmec art. The source is Monument 14, San Lorenzo Tenochtitlan, a very important Olmec site (and quite early, ca. 1200 BC). Originally, Monument 14 might have been a throne, as there are many thrones in San Lorenzo which, by the way, are all excellent in quality. There is another throne, Altar 5, which shows a similar (but not identical) headdress. There are some authors who analysed Olmec iconography, for example H.B. Nicholson, David Joralemon, and Ann Cyphers.
Thanks a lot for your interesting question and your kind words!
Ahh, that makes so much sense, for a moment I mistook it for a crocodile claw (which would have been nonetheless impressive). Thank you so much for providing these sources, that is very appreciated!
