movie day: CT-scan of a colossal pre-Columbian goddess

Until the early 1950s, the Classic Veracruz ceramics were few, little understood, and generally without provenance. Since then, the recovery of thousands of figurines and pottery pieces — from sites such as Remojadas — has expanded our understanding and filled many museum shelves. This Tlazolteotl Veracruz figure (800 to 1200 CE) is quite large and in exceptionally good condition despite a few restorations, as revealed by the CT-scan.
