Farmers digging in a citrus grove near Mexico’s Gulf coast have found a striking, six-foot-tall statue of a female figure who may represent an elite woman rather than a goddess, or some mixture of the two.

The National Institute of Anthropology and History said Friday it is the first such statue found in the region known as the Huasteca.

The carved woman has elaborate hair and marks of status, and may date to around 1450 to 1521.

While the site where it was found is closer to the pre-Hispanic ruins of El Tajin, the statue shows some influences of the Aztecs.
