This head represents one of the biggest puzzles in Olmec history. Indeed, the sculpture, original and more than 2,000 years old, represents a man with negroid features.
The first African blacks, however, arrived in the New World with the slave trade long after the Spanish conquest.
The enormous monolith, known as the "head of Cobata", is the heaviest of the 16 Olmecan sculptures of the same type.
