We see in this striking image the characteristic Teotihuacan art style, elegant and refined, stylized and ordered, resulting in an ancient work of art that also appears strikingly modern. The standing figure may be a god himself. In state of meditation, it appears as though he is chanting a prayer. This figure's smooth surface bears the ages of time and years of rubbing. The color green, bearing the breath of life, may have been carved specifically to represent good fortune and protection.
