Duality

Remojadas Double-Faced, Triple-Eyed Head. Its unusual form manifests the concept of dualism that is found in some Pre-Columbian thought. In order to reconcile the dualities, or opposites, such as life/death, youth/old age, sacred/profane, or male/female some images were made to embody both concepts at once.
