Aztec Standard Bearer. Seated on a small plinth with arms on knees and legs drawn up towards the body, this male figure wears an important headdress that was once topped with five tall tufts. The tufts, related to the crest of a great curassow, are now missing, but in the back, the head covering still hangs onto the shoulders, where the figure's name, 5 Serpent, is carved.
