Teotihuacan Style Mask

This mask (900-1521 CE) is made of greenstone with obsidian eyes. Teotihuacan predated the Aztec civilisation by over 1,000 years. The Aztec's were curious archaeologists and they were impressed by the ruins of the civilisations that came before them. (Melbourne Museum, Melbourne)
