Description

From a series of photographs of pre-Columbian ruins by Gordon Nicholson.

These figures are considered to be "massive statues of Toltec warriors" and they were made out of stones such as limestone, sandstone, or volcanic rock. Carved by hand, using stone tools like small chisels for sculpting, scrapers of various sizes to shape and add little detail and stone hammers to break the stones.
