Stone Fig

Found at a yard sale, terracotta

That's a really cool little thing - I've never heard of the name of Stone Fig before, and you haven't really explained if this is your name for it or the technical name of this type of artifact. If it's your name for it, can I ask why you call it that? It looks more like some kind of stylized lion, not a fig at all.

Here's my idea of what this is: based on the style of the head dress of the creature, this resembles some of the Mayan or Inca pottery and carvings, so I'm going to make a wild guess and say that this could possibly be a tourist type memento from maybe the Yucatan peninsula.

I would use this as a garden accent with some jungle type plants trailing over it - this would suit a Mexican style garden with some stucco walls and really big and bulky studded wooden doors.

Enjoy your 'Fig'!

Fig = figurine?

Maybe she meant figurine?

I kind of got that eventually! Yes, I'm sure that is what was meant, it was just me being dense!
