Archaeologists explained that farmers working in a citrus orchard in Mexico found a female statue titled “Star Wars” thought to represent a goddess or ruler.
According to the National Institute of Anthropology and History of Mexico, the two-meter sculpture made of limestone represents a young woman who is carefully dressed and wearing rare jewels.
These jewels include a circular pendant known as “oyohualli” and tassel-like earrings. It is also noteworthy that the woman depicted on the statue wears a headdress similar to that of Star Wars warrior Ahsoka Tano. Experts point out that all these features are a status indicator.
Farmers found the nearly 500-year-old statue in a citrus orchard in the town of Hidalgo Amajac in the Mexican state of Veracruz on January 1st, Independent Turkish quoted it from Livescience.
It was stated that the statue dates from 1450 to 1521 and has features reminiscent of the culture of the Huastec Civilization that ruled in Mexico in the pre-Columbian period.
The Huastec civilization developed in a region north of the state of Veracruz on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico before the Spanish colonized the continent and was conquered by the Aztec Empire in the 15th century.
On the other hand, since the garden where the work is located is not an archaeological excavation area, it is thought that the stone statue may have been moved from an unknown place.

According to AP’s report, it is also a mystery who belongs to the statue, whose mouth and eyes are open.
Mexican Culture Minister Alejandra Frausto Guerrero said the statue depicts a female ruler, possibly of great importance:
“(Eser) affirmed that women rulers actively participate in the social and political structure of the Huastec Civilization.”
María Eugenia Maldonado Vite, one of the institute’s archaeologists, disse, “Judging from her stance and attire, she looks more like a ruler than a goddess.
però, according to Maldonado, the statue could also be a combination of a goddess from the cult of fertility and an upper class woman with status.
Susan Gillespie, professor of anthropology at the University of Florida, disse, “Colonial-era Aztec documents speak of female ‘rulers’, or at least status holders who could depose the crown to their successors. In this respect, the statue did not come as a surprise ”.
Women were invaluable in the period before the Spanish conquest, they lost their status greatly after the conquest.
Nel 1994, archaeologists discovered the grave of another woman named the Red Queen because of the red paint covering the tomb, among the Mayan ruins at Palenque.
però, his grave is M.S. It was not clear whether the woman, dating from 600 to 700 years, was the ruler of Palenque.
