This sculpture, weighing 18 tons, is an exact copy of the colossal head that was discovered at the Olmec site of San Lorenzo, Veracruz, Mexico. The original is a landmark work of art of the Olmec culture that flourished in southern Mexico 1500-400 BCE.

The Universidad Veracruzana presented the replica as a gift to the Teresa Lozano Long Institute of Latin Studies in 2008 in recognition of the close ties between the peoples of the United States and Mexico.
