Day 38 13-04-06

The Midwife. Well that's what the specialists think this statue portrays. I only shot the top half. At the bottom of this statue you can vaguely make out an upsidedown person with spread legs.
It's one of the largest statues in San Agustin. Nobody knows what exactly they were for. Hundreds were found in this area, but no inscriptions or texts at all. So they're still guessing what they meant.
Until recently this area was still pretty unsafe because of FARC guerrilla presence. This means the site is not yet spoilt with hordes of tourists.
